Introduction

On the occasion of the International Koper Biennial we are announcing a composition competition. With it we wish to encourage creativity, which definitely contributes to self-exploration and critical thinking. The best compositions, determined by the jury, will be performed at the concert on the occasion of the following workshops: Composition and Performing contemporary music, which will take place from 27th to 30th of October 2019 in Koper and on which all participants of the competition are invited. The reward for best made composition will be a chance to compose another musical piece, which will be performed at the International Koper Biennial 2020. The members of the jury will lecture on previously mentioned workshops, which are intended to both composers and performers. The aim of these meetings is the exchange of opinions and experiences as well as an opportunity for potential collaborations in the future. The works and ideas, made during this event, could be a part of the concert named “New Generation” within the International Koper Biennial 2020.
In the following months we will announce more detailed information about the workshops and their lecturers as well as about members of the jury. Among us will definitely be renowned artists, who have been a part of the Biennial from the very beginning: Steven Loy, Uroš Rajko, Fabio Nieder.
