NEW MUSIC INCUBATOR concerts in Brussels


ECSA and the music academy of Watermael- Boiforts are happy to present the NMI concert at Maison Haute, Place Antoine Gilson 1, 1170 Brussels on 19.02.2018 at 19:30. This concert will show 5 newly created pieces of contemporary music- the creative product of 20 music practitioners who under the directions of Martin Q. Larsson came together in the spirit of music, creativity and cooperation.

New Music Incubator is an international exchange of professional composers and performers that meet for a week of creative collaboration (phase 1). Six months later they meet again for a public performance (phase 2). New Music Incubator encourages collaboration among artists in European countries; it inspires European cultural exchange.

For phase 1 of this NMI edition participants met in Konstancin, Poland from 18-23 September 2017. For three days, 20 selected new music practitioners from various EU countries created music together. On 22 September 2017, the groups performed a public concert as a fringe event at the Warsaw Autumn festival. See here for a clip with some impressions.

Phase 2 will take place in Brussels on 19.02.2018. Please see here for more details.
