HELP US BRING NEW MUSIC TO LIFE!

Other Minds works year-round to bring the best composers and performers of non-commercial music to the attention of the world. Support from people like you is essential to this valuable work.

EXPLORE OUR PAST EVENTS

OM Festival 27 brought together composers from around the world for six nights of music, starting with the US premiere of the documentary Subotnick: Portrait of an Electronic Music Pioneer and topped off with the world premiere of Eivind Buene’s Other Minds-commissioned string quartet Chorales. Meanwhile, our series The Nature of Music has presented artists from a variety of disciplines whose work combines environmentalism and the arts and our Latitudes series featured a performance by New York’s Ghost Ensemble. Our Special Events included a keyboard concert celebrating the 80th birthday of conductor and pianist Dennis Russell Davies and a screening of the documentary film Following Pál about composer and cellist Pál Hermann.
