The Delian Academy for New Music is an international summer academy for composers and sound artists located on the island of Mykonos, Greece.
Curated under the auspices of Georges Aperghis and Grypario Cultural Center, the Academy derives its name from the nearby island of Delos, the birthplace of god Apollo, and an UNESCO world heritage site.
Unlike top-down organization programs, our Academy is a participant-driven meeting where attendees co-decide and create the agenda for a series of symposia, workshops, and concerts with the guidance of faculty and staff.
The 2017 edition will take place from June 12 to June 19 in Grypario Cultural Center of Mykonos. Participating composers will have the chance to take part in masterclasses, presentations, workshops and have their music performed by our ensemble in residence.
Artistic director of the Academy is the Greek composer and music theorist, Alexandros Spyrou.
