Frequently asked questions
This is an honorary position which means that Georges Aperghis serves as an advisor to the faculty and staff, and as a consultant for the artistic activities of the Academy. Due to other commitments he will not be able to teach at the Academy this year.
What does “honorary president” mean? Will Georges Aperghis be in Mykonos?
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, you can arrive and depart whenever you like.
I can’t attend the academy for the whole period. Can I take part in it if I arrive later or leave earlier?
Yes, Mykonos is a very touristic destination and everyone speaks English.
