COMMITTED TO CONTEMPORARY MUSIC


Javier Hagen works together with a global community
of composers, musicians, visual artists, researchers,
technologists, thinkers to keep music creation alive and accessible,
so people worldwide can be informed contributors and creators.
Hagen believes this is essential to individual growth and our collective future,
and that it is only when people step forward – either as local,
national or global citizens – that sustainable change happens.

INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR CONTEMPORARY MUSIC
and ISCM WORLD MUSIC DAYS
as ISCM Switzerland's President


As one of the most important societies for Contemporary Music,
the ISCM was founded on an initiative of the second Viennese School
during the „Salzburger Festspiele“ in 1922. Founding members were
the composers Bartok, Hindemith, Honegger, Milhaud, Ravel, Berg,
Schönberg, Strawinsky and Webern. The ISCM comprises currently
65 independant sections. Every year it organises a Festival for
contemporary music, the World Music Days (ISCM WMD).
