The Delian Academy for New Music (Greek: Δήλια Ακαδημία Νέας Μουσικής) is an international summer academy for composers and sound artists located on the island of Mykonos, Greece. It was founded in 2016 by Alexandros Spyrou and is curated under the auspices of Grypario Cultural Center and Georges Aperghis who serves as honorary president[1]. The Academy derives its name from the nearby island of Delos, the birthplace of god Apollo, and a UNESCO world heritage site[2].

The Academy hosts composers from across the globe, presenting world premieres of acoustic and electronic music pieces. Invited faculty members have included composers Michael Finnissy, Panagiotis Kokoras, Elainie Lillios, and Dimitri Papageorgiou. Ensembles in residence have included Trio Accanto, Oerknal[3], and Zone Expérimentale.


The Academy takes place annually in June and lasts for 9-10 days. It consists of a 2-day symposium, private masterclasses, workshops, rehearsals and concerts[4][5][6]. Participants are selected by each year's committee members after an international call for composers. Each year one scholarship in memoriam Iannis Xenakis is awarded to a participating composer.


The Delian Academy for New Music has been kindly supported by Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung[7], Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne, Hellenic Ministry of Culture, Goethe Institute, Fonds Podiumkunsten and private donors.
