Past Editions

Since 2017, the Month of Contemporary Music has presented the diversity of Berlin's contemporary music scene every September. In concerts, performances and sound installations, current works by Berlin ensembles, artists and composers can be discovered - both in established concert halls and in independent venues.

The umbrella festival is curated by the scene itself: Ensembles, festivals and artists are invited to participate in the programme with events. The inm / field notes merely coordinates the individual events and ensures cross-festival communication. Through the common framework of the Month of Contemporary Music, the broad spectrum of activities can be adequately represented and communicated to a broader public.
