ISCM and and Gaudeamus selections
David Chisholm's and Amanda Cole's works have been selected for performance during the 2009 ISCM World Music Days in Sweden. Both Chisholm's Pierre Boulez à la discothèque and Cole's Vibraphone Theories were among the works submitted by the Australian Section for ISCM. Composers can also submit works through individual submissions, but there were no Australian works selected from this group for 2009. Altogether, there were more than 400 entries, out of which the jury selected 110.
ISCM World Music Days (24 September - 4 October) will take place in September in three locations in Sweden - in Visby (on the island of Gotland), in the mainland small town of Växjö and in the city of Gotheburg. The festival's theme is 'Listen to the World'. Please follow the links below for a full list of selected works and more information about the festival. Sweden's festival will be followed by the 2010 World Music Days in Sydney, Australia, in May 2010. The call for scores for the 2010 festival will be announced shortly.
The jury of the International Gaudeamus Music Week 2009 has made public its shortlist for the Gaudeamus Prize 2009. Peter McNamara's work Distorted Waters (2007) is among the fifteen works selected from 366 entries from all over the world.
International Gaudeamus Music Week will take place in Amsterdam (7-13 September) just before the ISCM World Music Days. At the end of the week, the jury will announce the winner of the Gaudeamus Prize 2009.
