The IGNM (international Association for Contemporary Music) has extended the deadline of its call for scores, open to composers of all ages living in Austria and Slovenia.

The project is devoted to improving artistic exchange between composers living in Austria and Slovenia. A young ensemble from each country has been invited to take part in the project: between feathers (AT) and Trio Tempestoso (SI). The project additionally aims to promote young talent and strengthen intercultural dialogue.

Composers resident in Slovenia and Austria (both citizens and international) are invited to submit existing works for any combination (duo to septet) of the following instruments:

Flute, clarinet, percussion, two accordions, voice, and violoncello

There is no age limit.


Please send your submissions to by June 10th, 2023 at the latest, with “Call for Scores – Ensembles & Composers Exchange Project” in the subject line.

Applications should include:

  • A maximum of 2 score(s) of existing work(s)
  • Links to audio or video recordings or MIDI realizations of the pieces, if available. Please do not send files!
  • Duration and year of composition(s)
  • A short biography (max. 100 words), composer homepage.

A jury consisting of Austrian and Slovenian composers and performers will decide on the winners. By sending a score, applicants declare their acceptance of the jury’s decision.

The winning compositions will be performed on November 13, 2023 at REAKTOR in Vienna, as part of Wien Modern and November 18, 2023 at Slovenian Philharmonic Hall in Ljubljana, as part of the Ljubljana New Music Forum.

The project is organized by the Austrian Section of the International Society for Contemporary Music and the Slovenian Cultural and Information Centre in Vienna, in cooperation with Wien Modern and the Ljubljana New Music Forum, and supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, Civil Service and Sport, the cultural department of the City of Vienna, SKE, the Austrian Cultural Forum in Ljubljana, and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia.
