“I love the people at KISS! I get to spend time with old friends and always make new friends who challenge and inspire me musically and intellectually.”

— Scott L. Miller, composer

“…I attended my first KISS conference…at St Cloud State as a student worker, and one particular concert, on which Chi Wang, Hua Sun and Jeff Stolet performed interactive live performance literally changed my life.”

Olga Oseth, Graduate Teaching Fellow, University of Oregon

“[KISS] participants represent the whole universe of music making: producers, composers, performers, scientists, sound designers, academics, beginners and experts. Being able to talk to everybody, asking questions to everybody and making all the contacts is invaluable!”

Prof. Franz Danksagmüller, Musikhochschule Lübeck

“After attending KISS for the first time in 2015, we have decided that we are attending only Kyma International Sound Symposiums in the future. Why? KISS has so much more to offer on so many different levels: It welcomes intelligent participants from all over the world to share their unique music and ideas…”
