ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music) is a global organisation and network for new music with more than 50 member countries. The organisation held its first ISCM World New Music Days in 1923 in the city of Salzburg, and since then has held an annual festival in diverse cities around the world. As a global event, the festival creates opportunities to connect composers with new audiences, new peers and musicians, as well as event organisers from around the world.
As a member of ISCM, Art Music Denmark sends an annual open call for works from Danish composers. Art Music Denmark’s TRIM-committee then selects six works within the current year’s categories and sends the selected works onwards to ISCM World New Music Days, whose jury is tasked with selecting at least one Danish piece to be performed at the festival.
