Ostrava Days 2017: Contemplations by Jim Igor Kallenberg
For anyone who is used to the unified mélange of New Mu...
Ostrava Center for New Music (OCNM) was founded in 2000 thanks to the initiative of Petr Kotík. A series of concerts with the Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra—where pieces by Earl Brown, John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Pauline Oliveros, Martin Smolka, and Karlheinz Stockhausen were played—prompted the idea of creating a special independent organization for new music.
OCNM was created for the purpose of organizing the biennial Ostrava Days Institute and Festival, a three-week-long summer project for composers, musicians, and musicologists from all over the world. Ostrava Days is a working and learning environment focused on orchestral compositions and audience with interest in contemporary art. During even years, OCNM organizes NODO/New Opera Days Ostrava. OCNM also organizes occasional one-off events of extraordinary musical significance.
