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) started an idea of creating special independent organization for new music.
OCNM was created for the purpose of organizing Ostrava Days, summer Institute and Festival, which gives composers, musicians and musicologists an opportunity to work with leading representatives of contemporary music. Ostrava Days is a working and learning environment focused on orchestral compositions.
