Elektramusic and Musiques Eclatées have joined forces to propose a call for projects aimed at fostering innovative and musical initiatives in contemporary music across Europe, in a spirit of solidarity.

The unprecedented Coronavirus crisis will make a lasting impact on the development of the European ideas and the mobility of musicians and their concerts. Everywhere we see range of initiatives in a period of confinement, created by musicians and musical ensembles who experiment from a distance, who develop new tools or who offer concerts on-line.

Dealing with this crisis should also make it possible to find new alternative sources of income for musicians focused on contemporary music, often absent from digital distribution networks.

The dramatic moment we have to face must allow us to develop innovation, new forms of solidarity and build a viable future.


Open to emerging musicians and musical ensembles from all over Europe who are taking advantage of this time of crisis to develop new projects in contemporary music or new ways of working, in a spirit of solidarity.

10 projects will be selected. We will be happy to support each project during a full year (coaching, administration, communication), promote the online digital distribution of these projects, and we will offer each project a concert in Strasbourg, European capital, in 2021.
