ACIMC Contemporary Music Festival

Paris, 16 - 18 November 2018

About the project

je In our biggest event to date, with the generous support of The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, Fondation Francis et Mica Salabert and Cité internationale universitaire de Paristhe Association of Iranian Contemporary Music Composers (ACIMC) is bringing three prominent contemporary music ensembles, Ensemble KNM BerlinEnsemble Alternance of Paris, and Sonar Trio of Lecce to Paris, for a three-day festival of chamber music concerts, roundtable and composition workshop as ACIMC's first contemporary music festival. In this three-day event, 11 new works by ACIMC composers and works of young composers who have been selected to our call for scores will receive their world-premier along with pieces from the repertoire by composers such as Helmuth Lachenmann, Olivier Messiaen, Brice Pauset, Ivan Fedele and Jean-luc Hervé

As part of the festival, we are also organizing a roundtable on the sociopolitical condition of contemporary music in Iran in addition to a composition workshop by Jean-Luc Hervé and the musicians of the ensembles for the participating young composers.  

The funding needs of a three-day festival include the commission fees, the performance fees, advertisement, accommodation and transportation, venue rentals, instrument rental and transport, recording and documentation, etc. We've covered nearly all of our budget through the generous grant by the Siemens Foundation and Fondation Salabert and number of other independent supporters, but we still need your help to meet our final funding goals!

The festival is planned to take place on November 16, 17 and 18, 2018 at Cité internationale universitaire de Paris. To learn more about the details of the festival and reservations, visit our website:  www.acimc.eu

La scène artistique de l’Iran, notamment dans le domaine de la musique, est en permanente évolution. Elle témoigne de l’émergence d’une nouvelle génération de compositeurs qui, malgré les contraintes que les artistes du pays doivent affronter, mettent en œuvre leur créativité afin de s’exprimer.

C’est pour cette raison que nous faisons appel à vous afin d’être soutenu dans l’organisation de la première édition du festivaldelamusiquecontemporained’ACIMC - Paris 2018, où seront présenté 27 créations, dont 12 des jeunes compositeur qui vivent et étudient dans le pays.

Le festival propose aussi des œuvres des compositeurs établis de la France, de l’Allemagne, de l’Italie et de l’Iran.

Chaque  geste compte pour la réalisation et la poursuite de notre initiative. Si un des vos compositeurs préférés figure dans le programme du festival, si le travail d’un des ensembles vous plait, ou si vous aimez la musique, soutenez-nous.

 

 

What are the funds for?

So, what do we need?

The cost of venue rentals, a proportion of the musicians fees, travel expenses, promotion costs and instrumental rentals right now stand between us and a weekend of rich experience of contemporary music! If you are interested in supporting a flourishing new music scene that supports diversity, if you know a composer who is being featured at our festival, if you know our three amazing ensembles-in-residence or if you just simply love music, please consider making a contribution to this event.

Your contribution is not only helping us to realize our first festival, but with your support, we lay a foundation for yearly recurrence of this event!

About the project owner

In 2013, number of Iranian composers founded “the Association of Iranian Contemporary Music Composers” in Paris. The main goal of this association is to support the production and the performance of the work of Iranian composers living in Iran or abroad. The establishment of such association is also a vital step to create a platform for the analysis, discussion and promotion of the repertoire of Iranian composers, which constantly grows substantially. We aim to expand the dialogue between the Iranian composers and the international music scene. For this purpose, ACIMC tries to reach out for international New Music foundations, institutions and festivals to introduce the work of Iranian composers and at the same time seek their support for our projects.
