Selection of Submissions

The editorial team checks all the submissions and decides based on the overall picture which of the events submitted will be published in print. It's important for us to present a well-rounded overview of concerts in the editorial section of the magazine. The main thing we aim for is a balance of genres and disciplines: new music, music theatre, sound art, improvisation and Echtzeitmusik, and electroacoustic and electronic music. We also make sure that different figures are represented over the course of the magazine's run. field notes give special consideration to players in the independent scene. In addition, the magazine's programme continually strives to reflect social diversity.

We ask for your understanding if your event does not get selected. If you have entered your event in the calendar on the website in time for the editorial deadline, it will at least appear in the calendar section of the magazine with the basic details. Alternatively, we would be happy to include your event in our newsletter or in our Facebook communication.
