Julia Gomelskaya (1964-2016)

Julia GomelskayaWe were very sad to learn the tragic news that composer Julia Gomelskaya was killed in a car accident on December 4. Many members of the ISCM community know Ms. Gomelskaya as the delegate from the Odessa-based Association New Music which is the official Ukranian Section of ISCM. Ms. Gomelskaya was a fixture at the ISCM General Assembly for many years.



New Secretary General and Treasurer of our Society starting from 2016





After intense consultations and speaking with several interested persons, the Executive Committee has appointed Olga Smetanov as Secretary General and Walter De Schepper as Treasurer. 



THE 2015 ISCM WORLD MUSIC DAYS - Report by Frank J. Oteri





By Frank J. Oteri on October 23, 2015

A view of Ljubljana from one of its highest points, Ljubljana Castle.

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.
