ISCM Sections' Report 2005

ISCM's Austrian section: "IGNM Oesterreich"

Austrian Section; The 2005 status:

Beside of the Viennese Headquarter-Section there are four sections in other regional states of the nation: Carinthia, Upper-Austria, Salzburg and Tyrol.

A Lower-Austria Section will start in October 2005, Styria and Burgenland to follow 2006.

General Assembly January 2005: Same successful board: Maria Skodak, Prof. Dr. Hans Landesmann, Stefan David Hummel, Mag. Johannes Kretz, Hannes Heher, Thomas Heinisch, Monika Fuchs. Katharina Klement, Austrias wellknown "musical General-Runner", famous for her works � Classics, Electronics, Multimedias, improvised music - joined the board. More new ideas, more new efforts. Future Board meetings periodically in the provinces outside of Vienna to improve communication and to further the process earlier of strengthening the sections in Carinthia, Upper Austria, Salzburg and Tyrol as well as helping them become more independent.

Austria is known to enjoy a tremendous rich musical life which includes many performances of all kinds of contemporary music. The recent wave of composers, students and musicians coming from the eastern countries has brought many excellent performers and composers, residing in Austria for a while, a year or for ever. One of the main tasks of the Austrian section: To gather these people interested in the changing world of New Music, to promote discussions, to offer a creative exchange within the different styles of our days music culture. The results of this task turned out to be more successful from year to year.

During the six months since the last WMDs the number of members, concerts and events increased, our society represents today already more than three hundred Austrian native and resident members from other countries. Since last November 36 concerts with all in all 59 �First Performances� had been staged.

Cooperations with the five music-universities, the conservatories, music-schools and Radio-Stations, the Jeunesses Musicales, other musical institutions continued and increased as well.

Some of the 2004/2005 Activities:

Without going into any analyses trying to formulate the existence of trends or aesthetic standpoints in the Austrian musical landscape, the following aspects will give an idea about the activities of the Austrian Section. The board still chooses the yearly program and the works to be performed as premières. Principle: No account is taken of cultural policy or personal considerations.
