The ISCM World Music Days festival is an annual international showcase of new music from around the world, attended by many international delegates as well as attending composers, producers and programmers.
The Scottish Music Centre (SMC) and New Music Scotland (NMS), as Associate members of the ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music) are entitled to select and submit 6 works that meet the specified categories and criteria, for consideration by an international jury. One of these works is guaranteed a performance during the festival. The SMC and NMS will publicise the 6 successfully submitted composers and works via our websites and communication channels, as well as the final selected work(s) in due course. The Scottish Section will also work with the selected composer(s) with the aim of securing funding to attend the ISCM World Music Days in South Africa.
