ISCM Sections' Reports 2005/2006:

ISCM's Austrian section: "IGNM Oesterreich" 

The Austrian section -IGNM - Oesterreich- - 1922 born from the composers own initiative, from innovation, from breaks with tradition, from the interplay between new musical trends and feedbacks with audiences, had during the first approximately forty years to deal with isolation, scepticism from the medias, the concert going public, the many barriers to its proper performance.

With the enormous effort from all the members and supporters, the position turned out to be better from year to year, allowing in particular throughout the last three decades the realisation of many new important and successful projects. 

In the period reviewed in this report, the section continued the activities developed in recent years. Besides the well established and since many years' popular concert series in Vienna and other cities, a number of special events and participations had been scheduled: All of them in the spirit of honouring these active members of the Austrian IGNM, who have enriched throughout the more than eight hard decades the world of music with many praised New Music works, all of them as well of celebrating ISCM as the today's major global music- cultural Society:

The 2006 status: 
Beside of the Viennese Headquarter-Section there are sections, chapters and attached groups of composers in all but one regional states of the nation. 

74th General Assembly, May 2006:

Some changes within the board: Honorary President: Prof. Friedrich Cerha; President: Maria Skodak, Vice-Presidents: Prof. Dr. Erwin Ortner and Stefan David Hummel; Secretarys: Prof. Hartmut Krones and Mag.Wolfgang Suppan, Treasurers: Thomas Heinisch and Monika Fuchs; Members: Wolfgang Danzmayr, Katharina Klement, Joachim Lieben; Representatives from the national chapters: Alfred Peschek, Bruno Strobl, Guenther Zechberger; Counselors: Dr.Gertraud Cerha, Prof. Lothar Knessl, Prof. Dr.Hans Landesmann;
Organization and Vienna Office: Monika Fuchs, Joachim Lieben; www.ignm.at 

This board still chooses the yearly program and the works to be performed as premières. 
Principle: No account is taken of cultural policy or personal considerations.

2006: Again many new ideas, again many important efforts. 

During the period since the last ISCM-General assembly (2005 April, Zagreb) the number of members, concerts and events still increased. Cooperations with the Festivals of Bregenz, Linz, Vienna and Bolzano -wien modern-, the already eight State and Private Music-Universities, the Conservatories, Music-Schools and Radio-Stations, the local Sections of Jeunesses Musicales and of other musical institutions continue and increase as well. The wave of composers, students and musicians coming from countries from all over the world has brought many excellent performers and composers, residing in Austria for a while, a year or for ever. One of the main tasks of the Austrian section: To gather these people interested in the changing world of New Music, to promote discussions, to offer a creative exchange within the different styles of our day's music culture. The result of this task turns out to be more successful from year to year.

The Austrian Section represents today already more than three hundred seventy Austrian native and resident members from other countries. Since April 2005 about 160 concerts with all in all 122 First Performances had been organized.

These 83rd and 84th years of the Austrian IGNM offered and offers 2005 and 2006 again an occasion for a number of festivals and special events:
