The call for project submissions is now closed. We are now in the evaluation process. Thank you to the many participants!

The SMCQ is pleased to launch its call for submissions for the 8th edition of the Montréal/New Music international festival, to be held from February 23 through March 5, 2017 with the theme “Back to the Future.”

Taking place within the framework of the festivities surrounding the 50th anniversary of the SMCQ, before all else this theme is designed to provoke a reflection on the music of tomorrow. How do you imagine the music of the future? Also: how did the composers of the past imagine the music of the future? Premieres and the recent works take centre stage, while additionally leaving a special place to the visionaries from the past.

A forum for new technologies from the past and present, a forum for the most fragmented musical genres, a forum for innovative disciplinary mixtures… Unless the music of tomorrow simply returns to its sources? Let us know!
