N:xt Steps 2015 / Introduction

On behalf of SNYK — the national centre for contemporary, experimental music and sound art in Denmark, and in collaboration with the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Le Vivier in Montréal, it is a pleasure to welcome you to Copenhagen and the second edition of our Trans-Atlantic festival NORAC network conferences.

The conference N:xt Steps is a continuation of the CartelMTL meeting organized in Montréal in June 2014 and will focus on ways to develop collaboration between contemporary music festivals in the Nordic Region, the rest of Europe and North America.

The conference will take place during the Nordic Music Days Festival, and will start with a welcome reception in the evening of September 23, followed by two full conference days and concerts on September 24 and 25. On September 26 and 27, full days of Nordic Music Days events will be programmed.

We are very grateful for your participation.
