 Unfortunately, we cannot accept midi realizations. 

I don’t have a recording of the score I am submitting; can I send a midi realization?

  You can send whatever represents you best. This can be in the form of a score, text, image, video or other medium. 

 I am applying as an electronic composer/sound artist. I have no scores for my work or my scores are unconventional. What should I send?

 Unfortunately not. The ensembles will perform a limited number of pieces. If you would like to have a piece for instruments and electronics performed you should apply for the acoustic composition program.

Can I have my piece or part of my piece performed by the ensemble in residence if I participate in the composition in progress program?

Yes, Mykonos is a very touristic destination and everyone speaks English.

I don’t speak any Greek; will I be able to communicate with locals on the island?
