To complete a line-up they are seeking work from member countries and delegations to celebrate the breadth of new music today.

How it works in a nutshell...

As the official British member of ISCM, Sound and Music are invited to submit six new works (from 11 categories) to the international jury that meet specified criteria - with one piece being guranteed a live-slot at the festival. Ensembles and performers have already been selected for the specific categories. 

Artists can submit works to Sound and Music to consider for shortlisting (for free) or, alternatively, they can submit directly to ISCM as an individual (for €53).
