Composer Conference in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Created: 2012-02-17 12:07:47

The Slovenian Society of Composers (DSS) hosted in collaboration with the Music Academy of Ljubljana the annual meeting of ECSA’s member ECF (European Composers’ Forum). The meeting was accompanied by a series of round table discussions, concerts and workshops. At the centre of debate were the awaited upcoming legislative proposals from the European Commission regarding collective management of authors’ rights and the representation of composers in Europe. It was stressed that any legislative proposal must take the views of creators into account, such as the necessity to maintain the exclusive assignment (of the performing rights) to collective societies. The event hosted also a workshop focusing on education of composing and music in schools, as well as three seminaries with children in the classroom. Furthermore, David Stoll (UK), Peter Sachsenheimer (Austria) and Helmut Erdmann (Germany), discussed under the title “Composers Factory” different approaches to the idea of integrating best practices for creative musical work in schools and in education in general.
