ISCM World Music Days 2012 - call for works

ISCM World Music Days 2012 - call for works

The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) is seeking works for its 2012 World Music Days in Brussels, Belgium (25 October-4 November 2012). The prestigious World Music Days festival offers a rare opportunity to hear new works from all over the world, performed by some of Europe's top new music ensembles.

Please note that the works must have been composed between 2006-2011, and composers whose works were performed at the World Music Days in Zagreb in 2011 are ineligible to submit works for the 2012 festival. One work per composer can be submitted, either through the Official or Individual submissions.

Official submissions

As the Australian Section of the ISCM, the Australian Music Centre is calling for works to include in their Official submission. The deadline for the Australian section is 1 July 2011. The section will select 6 works for consideration by the 2012 ISCM World Music Days selection jury. At least one work from every Official submission will be performed.

Submissions to the Australian section should be sent by 1 July (postmark) to: Philippa Horn, Australian Music Centre, PO Box N690, Grosvenor Place, NSW 1220. Composers, improvisers and sound artists making a submission should lodge only ONE work in ONE of the categories offered, with all required support materials as listed within the guidelines. For work categories, submission materials and all other details, please see the call for works document (pdf) on the WMD 2012 website.

Individual submissions

Individual artists whose work has not been selected by the section may also submit directly to ISCM. Deadline for individual submissions is 1 August 2011, and a payment of €50 by credit card or bank transfer is required - information about the payment procedure is available in the call for works document.
