About us

ISCM – International Society for Contemporary Music

ISCM is an international network of members from around fifty countries, devoted to the promotion and presentation of contemporary music – the music of our time.

The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) is a premier forum for the advancement, dissemination and interchange of new music from around the world. Through ISCM, our members promote contemporary music in all its varied forms, strengthening musical life in their local contexts and making their music and its creators known to world.

The ISCM embraces the diverse music of its many members without discrimination on the basis of race, gender, religion, or politics. It values open and democratic procedures in the formation and enactment of policy, including the decision (made by the General Assembly of all its members) regarding where each World New Music Days festival will be held. The ISCM pledges to realize the equitable representation of nationality, gender, and age of composers and musicians in all of its programming. As an international organization of artists, we support diversity and ensure to promote it.
