ISCM World New Music Days 2020 Postponed

 

 

 

 

ANNOUNCEMENT - 16 March 2020

With much sadness, I must announce that the double festival of ISCM World New Music Days and Asian Composers League Festival cannot take place in 2020. We were very much looking forward to presenting this ambitious double festival for the first time in Aotearoa New Zealand.

This difficult decision has been necessitated by recent global developments, as governments attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19, in particular the border closures and other restrictions that many countries have been putting in place over the past few days.

 

 

BREAKING NEWS Re ISCM WNMD 2020

 

 

 

 

Due to travel restrictions and other measures that are evolving very quickly on a global scale, we are aware that most international visitors to New Zealand will be unable to travel to the ISCM2020 World New Music Days / Asian Composers League 2020 Festival. We are working through the implications with the Executive Committees of the ISCM and the ACL in order to announce a clear decision. As Festival Director, I will be making a formal statement on this website and by email on Monday afternoon (NZ time).

Kia kaha.

The Wizards of New Music: Reflections on the 2016 ISCM World Music Days by Frank J. Oteri

The sun rising behind a bridge in TongyeongSince returning from the latest iteration of the International Society for Contemporary Music’s (ISCM) annual World Music Days, which this year was held in the remote South Korean fishing town of Tongyeong from March 27 to April 1, 2016, I’ve been struggling to figure out the best way to describe what I experienced during those six days. In order to try to explain this extremely unusual annual event and the community that participates in it, I've compared it to the wizard world that J. K. Rowling describes in her popular Harry Potter novels.

Before trekking to Ljubljana, Slovenia for the 2015 World Music Days (WMD), the signature annual music festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM), I had attended three previous editions of this one-of-a-kind event. There is no other music festival on the planet that attempts to bring together a selection of recently composed music that has been vetted by new music organizations from countries on six continents.
