International public organization
Ukrainian section of the International Society for Contemporary Music/ISCM
President Karmella Tsepkolenko
The Association New Music/ANM was founded in Odessa in 1995. In 1996 the ANM joined the International Society for Contemporary Music/ISCM as a full member representing all of Ukraine. 
The idea to create the ANM emerged during planning for the first International Festival of modern art Two Days and Two Nights of New Music/2D2N (Odessa, 1995) by Ukrainian composer, founder, and artistic director of this festival Karmella Tsepkolenko, who has become the founder and President of the International Public Organization Association New Music. 
The ANM activity is aimed at the development of New music and modern art in Ukraine. The principal task of the ANM is thorough support of composers, musicians, musicologists, cultural managers, and artists involved in the innovative trends of contemporary music and synthetic kinds of art. Proceeding from the ideal of free development of art, the ANM doesn’t limit the concept of New music by stylistic or ideological boundaries. 
The ANM achieves its aims through the organizing and holding of various cultural forums, realizing audio and audio-visual recordings, producing CDs, publishing scores, and other production activities (electronic and hard copies). 
The ANM is engaged in information and advertising activities, provides gratis management, fosters creative work and professional skills improvement, furthers contacts with colleagues and managers of the international musical community, assists in the performance and recording of music, encourages participation in festivals and competitions, and facilitates information exchange. 
One of the current directions of ANM activity is organizing and holding cultural forums. Undoubtedly, the main ANM achievement in this field of activity is the annual International Festival of Modern Art Two Days and Two Nights of New Music, which is recognized as one of the most important musical events in Europe. 2D2N doesn’t imitate any other festival: its uncommon distinction is that it unites new content with a novel festival form. It is an uninterrupted 48-hour action: its unique character results from the fact that an enormous composition, involving performers and audience, is created in a rather limited time period. Primarily owing to this festival, the ANM managed to attract both public and experts, hundreds of first-class professional Ukrainian and foreign artists, composers, performers and musical managers. The Association has been recording all music performed during Two Days and Two Nights of New Music and selected works were included in four CDs releases (two of them is a double CDs) and the DVD-ROM Association New Music – Self-Reflection at the Turn of Millennia which covers activities of the ANM within the period 1995–2005. Alongside the festival activities, the ANM also collects and distributes information about contemporary musical processes. Toward this aim the Musical Information Center/MIC for contemporary music was created in 2000. The main direction of the MIC activity is the collection, processing and distribution of information about New music as well as the development of a library that collects printed, audio-visual and electronic information about composers, musicians, performers, conductors, and musical teams who perform New music; scores; over 1000 CD recordings of contemporary music etc. Musicians and teachers, students and pupils, all interested persons can use these editions free of charge.
ANM has also prepared and edited various materials: journals, festival booklets, handbooks etc. Creation of electronic databases, catalogues, and encyclopaedias on contemporary Ukrainian music is important part of the ANM activity. The website of the Association was created in 1999 to promote contemporary Ukrainian art and the activities of the ANM. Therein there are three main sections: ANM, Festival 2D2N and MIC. Since 2000 ANM has edited the Ukrainian/English online-magazine Musica Ukrainica, where articles and research materials by famous Ukrainian and foreign musicologists, musicians, composers, journalists and cultural managers are published. 
The CD-ROM New music of Ukraine – composers, works, performers: a multimedia database was produced by the ANM in 2001. It contains Ukrainian/English information about 24 Ukrainian composers and New music performers (over 250 musicians and musical groups): photos, biographies, complete lists of works, addresses, as well as 3–5 recordings of every composer, in total 12 hours of music, 57 selected works, in MP3 format. 
The Ukrainian/English reference book, Contemporary Composers of Ukraine, featuring biographical data, photos, and complete lists of musical works of 33 Ukrainian contemporary music composers, has been published in 2002. 
In 2003, the double CD-ROM Candours of Mystery: a multimedia database was produced. This English/Ukrainian multimedia database contains information about 12 Ukrainian women composers, also featuring over 170 musicians and musical groups and 111 pieces performed, i.e. 22 hours of music in MP3 format.
In 2005, the DVD-ROM Association New Music - Self-Reflection at the Turn of Millennia was issued in 1995. Multimedia database covers activities of the ANM during the period of 1995-2005.
In total, 2 CD-ROMs, 10 CDs, a DVD-ROM, a reference book on contemporary composers and over 90 booklets have been issued by the ANM. In 2018, an album book was published up to the 25th anniversary of the 2D2N Festival with the support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation.
ANM represents Ukraine at various international forums, thereof the annual Festival World Music Days which is organized by the ISCM is the most important. Karmella Tsepkolenko, as the ANM President and a Chief Delegate from Ukrainian Section of the ISCM, has participated in the General Assembly and annual festivals of World Music Days since 1997 where the works of such Ukrainian composers were presented: I. Aleksiychuk, A. Chibalashvili, J. Gomelskaya, M. Kolomiets’, A. Korsun, V. Runchak, V. Cylvestrov, K. Tsepkolenko, O. Schetynsky, O. Shmurak, L. Yurina, A. Zagaykevych and other.
ANM members participate in concerts and competitions all over the world. They represent Ukrainian art as well as benefit from their experience abroad. The ANM’s activities have also fostered the process of mutual exchange: Ukrainian musicians perform works by foreign composers, and foreign performers present works by contemporary Ukrainian composers. 
The ANM has much experience in cultural management. Many times it has provided consulting about these issues for foreign countries. The ANM has implemented a large culture-education project Centre for Applied Cultural Management/CACM supported by the Swiss Pro Helvetia Fundation. 
The activities of the ANM, including all the events described above, have been realized through the unique experience and long-term cooperation of the Association with many Ukrainian and international institutions and organizations. Due to the initiatives of its members and fruitful cooperation with these institutions and organizations, the ANM has got new perspectives for the implementation of creative ideas as well as new projects at national and international levels.
