RE:NEW MUSIC supported the circulation and performance of existing high quality ensemble repertoire. Through a unique partner network between European composers, new music ensembles, music information centres, composer societies and copyright associations, RE:NEW MUSIC created a permanent network across the project’s 11 countries, and the project has paved the way for a new and dynamic exchange of music, knowledge and new ideas.
22 ensembles from the 11 countries were involved, carrying out the project’s main activities.The diversity of the group helped create exciting possibilities to establish a dynamic networking platform on which topics of common interest for the partners and their respective music environments could be discussed and common action taken.
In the RE:NEW MUSIC project, 12 partners and 22 leading European new music ensembles from 11 countries collaborated in the first two year project which ran up until November 2010. RE:NEW MUSIC was initiated by the Nordic Composer’s Council and was also coordinated and managed by the Danish Composers´ Society in Copenhagen. RE:NEW MUSIC was funded by the EU Culture Programme and the Nordic Council of Ministers, in addition to contribution from the 12 partners in the project, including PRS for Music Foundation.
