At RMN Music, we want to discover the next generation of composers that are making works of Electroacoustic Music


Luciano Berio, Pierre Boulez, Pierre Schaeffer, Edgar Varèse, Iannis Xenakis, Steve Reich, Milton Babbit, John Cage …

Electronic Music, Live Electronics, Electroacoustic Music, Music Concrète, Acousmatic, Soundart, Sound Installation, Soundscapes…

If you use technology to generate, transform, manipulate, create sounds and compositions then this project is what you were looking for.


ABOUT THE PROJECT


We decided to launch this Call for Electroacoustic Works to discover and promote the next generation of composers that create music with instruments different from the tradition.

We are looking for sounds that have never been heard before, innovative ideas, original compositions, outstanding productions, anything able to shape the music culture of tomorrow’s young composers, musicians and audience.

We plan to select the best works and to produce a top quality release to add to our current catalogue. The fresh new album will be produced by RMN Classical and released worldwide through RMN Music. The release will be distributed worldwide in a high-quality edition on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play Music, Amazon Music, Spotify and many other stores. We are currently setting up a physical distribution for all of our releases and we’re glad to add this services to the prize as soon as this will be available.
