Syra Sonora is a sonic exploration of Syros island as collectively mediated during a field-recording workshop I conducted in July 2014. Under my supervision, and for almost a week, the participants collected all sorts of sounds based on their unique encounters with the island, their inhabitants as well as with each other and with various other resident artists.

Workshop participants: C. Jimoulis, C. Katsiris, Nikos Ro, A. Mavrides, V. Noulas, N. Papaspyrou, C. Parpara, P. Simsiroglou, M. Vardakas. Resident artist: Viv Corringham.
