Open Call

Dear Colleagues,

In 2021, the Month of Contemporary Music will once again present the unparalleled diversity of Berlin's contemporary music scene. Current works by Berlin ensembles, artists and composers can be discovered in concerts, performances and sound installations – both in established concert halls and in independent venues.

The Month of Contemporary Music is curated by the scene itself: ensembles, festivals, venues and artists are invited to contribute events to the program. The inm / field notes only coordinates the individual events and administers cross-festival communication. Via the common framework of the Month of Contemporary Music, a wide range of activities can be adequately showcased and our diversity can be communicated to a broader public.

Warm regards,

inm – initiative neue musik berlin e.V. / field notes
