The restoration of KSYME’s Synthi100 is a documenta 14 project, in collaboration with KSYME-CMRC; with the help of EMS and Fylkingen, Stockholm.

Fylkingen sent two composers and Fylkingen members to KSYME-CMRC beginning of 2017 for a residency program​,​ in order for them to have the time to create new work for the Synthi 100. In April they are back to perform in​ a​ concert program at Megaron, the Athens Concert Hall.

Lisa Stenberg is composer and performer of instrumental, electroacoustic and electronic music. Her music moves in the electroacoustic continuum between field recordings and electronic music, a hybrid kind of music
linked to drone. Her interest and exploration of transformation, texture, energy and spatiality lie at the core of her work as well as emotional and physical points of departures. Lisa also compose and perform in the context of performing arts and collaborates with choreographers and other artists as well as working with public sound installations.

Since the late 80's, Jonas Broberg has been composing electroacoustic music. His music has been awarded in several international competitions, including a first prize in Bourges, France 1998 for the piece "Conversation in Cadaques". He also performs live with electronics. Recently he released his solo album "Splash Mekanik" on Börft Records.

CMRC (Contemporary Music Research Center) was founded in 1979 by Iannis Xenakis, Giannis G. Papaioannou and Stephanos Vassileiadis in Athens. The fundamental aim of the Center was the research and the development of electroacoustic music in Greece. Since the very first days the Center obtained pioneer musical equipment such as UPIC of Iannis Xenakis.

The project is realized with kind support from Goethe Institute Sweden, and Kungliga Musikaliska Akademien.
