field notes is the central information and counseling center for the contemporary music scenes in Berlin by the inm – initiative neue musik berlin e.V. The program makes the divers activities of the contemporary music in Berlin visible and accessible and thus increases the general interest in new music by bundling and catalysing the rich potential of Berlins contemporary music scene.

The field notes information platform provides regular information on events and informs about the latest developments and contributes significantly to increasing the visibility of contemporary music and jazz. Furthermore, the Month of Contemporary Music promotes current works by Berlin ensembles, artists and composers – in established concert halls and opera houses as well as independent venues and it hence creates a unique focus on today's music. To strengthen the scene itself, field notes offers free consultations, workshops and information events. The annual conference on contemporary music in a global context stimulates to reflect on intercultural cooperation, international networks, and artistic practices in global contexts and connects actors based in Berlin with international professionals.
