Sounding Paths is a residency program for site-specific sound projects organized by the Syros Sound Meetings initiative & Syros Institute.

For the Interfaces' edition of Sounding Paths residency, musicians, sound artists & improvisers of all levels & backgrounds with a documented interest in experimentation & site-specific composition, improvisation or performance, are invited for a joint residency in the island of Syros, Greece via an open call & personal invitation process.

The residency program has hosted participants from Greece, Cyprus, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Finland, U.K., U.S.A., Canada, Australia and Japan and led to the development of original site-inspired works and performances by a diverse range of international artists, including Graham Lambkin, Áine O’Dwyer, Michael Pisaro, Deborah Stratman, Viv Corringham, Mike Cooper, Andrew Raffo Dewar and Sabu Toyozumi.

Since 2017, Sounding Paths residency program is part of the Interfaces network and is supported by the Onassis Cultural Centre & the Creative Europe Program of the European Union. 

Direction & programming: Danae Stefanou & Yannis Kotsonis
