ISCM World New Music Days 2013


ISCM Canadian Section Announcement of Selected Works for the World Music Days 2013 in Košice, Bratislava and Vienna


The ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music) Canadian Section is pleased to announce the composers and works selected to represent Canada at the World Music Days in Košice, Bratislava and Vienna in 2013.

A committee consisting of Robert Lemay, Rose Bolton and non-voting chair Jim Hiscott met recently in Toronto and selected six works as Canada’s official submission to the international jury of the 2013 World Music Days. These works will be featured on the annual ISCM Canadian Section CD, which will be handed out to presenters and interpreters from countries around the world.


World Music Days 2013 in Košice, Bratislava and Vienna ISCM Canadian Section Selected Works (no order of preference*)


Derek Charke

Disturbances of Circadian Rhythm (flute and electronics)

Brian Harman
Supposed Spaces (orchestra)

Alice Ho 
Aeon (solo piano) 

Anna Höstman 
Pine Trees & Blue Sky (flute, clarinet, piano, percussion, violin and cello)

Anna Pidgorna

Patrick Saint-Denis

The ISCM Canadian Section is pleased to be associated with the above works, and we look forward to hosting our selected composers at the World Music Days Festival 2013 in Košice, Bratislava and Vienna. 

For more information on ISCM activities, and on the artists and their works, please review the websites listed below and/or contact the ISCM Canadian Section representatives. 

At least one of the six works included in our national submission will be performed during the festival (the international jury can, however, select more than one of these works); we will endeavour to promote and disseminate all of these works with the hope that they will receive performances in Canada and abroad, in addition to the eventual World Music Days performance and annual ISCM Canadian Section CD printing.


Sincerely,
Jim Hiscott

Jim Hiscott, President, ISCM Canadian Section
Brian Current, Vice-President, ISCM Canadian Section

*please note that the committee identified several other high-quality works that unfortunately were not selected due to the limitations imposed on each ISCM country’s submission.

IMPORTANT Composers whose works were not selected by the Canadian Section, and composers who would still like to apply on a private basis are welcome to submit directly to the international jury (fee applies for individual submissions). Deadline for individual submissions: December 31, 2011
