Raed Yassin: »A Small Leak of an Interior Monologue« (2021)

In 2023, the Month of Contemporary Music (1.–30.09.2023) will once again present the unparalleled diversity of Berlin's contemporary music scene. The umbrella festival invites you to discover current works by Berlin ensembles, artists and composers in concerts, performances and sound installations – both in established concert halls and in independent venues.

The Month of Contemporary Music is curated by the scene itself: ensembles, festivals, venues and artists are invited to contribute events to the program.

Via the common framework of the Month of Contemporary Music, a wide range of activities can be adequately showcased and communicated to a broader public.
