ISCM – International Society for Contemporary Music

ISCM is an international network of members from around fifty countries, devoted to the promotion and presentation of contemporary music - the music of our time.

The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) is a premier forum for the advancement, dissemination and interchange of new music from around the world. Through ISCM, our members promote contemporary music in all its varied forms, strengthening musical life in their local contexts and making their music and its creators known to world.

The annual ISCM World Music Days Festival is organized each year by a different host. The festival presents music from each of our members, showcasing the incredible diversity of musical practice in our time.

The WNM Magazine is an annually published magazine on contemporary music published by the ISCM. It is published in connection to ISCM's annual festival World (New) Music Days, hosted by one of ISCM's members.

ISCM arranges many activities throughout the year. These are the ISCM Young Composer Awards, ISCM-VICC Composer in Residency program and ISCM Collaborative Events that are activities co-organised by multiple ISCM Members.
