These 5 works will be premiered at a concert on 21 August 2010 during the festival "Avantgarde Tirol" in Rattenberg, Austria.
The jury, consisting of Miguel Azguime (Portugal), Giovanni Trovalusci (Italy), Helmut Erdmann (Germany) and Henk Heuvelmans (the Netherlands) will then decide which composer will be the winner of the competition. The winning work and possibly other works from this final will be programmed at the festivals of the members of the jury and at other festivals of members of the ECPNM during the concert season 2010/2011 or later.
For the 2010 competition 22 projects were proposed by composers from all over Europe. With this competition the ECPNM stimulates artistic co-operation within Europe as well as the creation of new works for live-electronics. The winner of the 2009 competition, composer/performer Alex Nowitz, is now touring through Europe and presents his winning project many times for a broad European audience.
