INCLUDING THE AUDIENCE AND NEW ASPECTS OF THE ART by Sine Tofte Hannibal (DK)
Hear about NEW MUSIC: NEW AUDIENCES, an international network focusing on developing new concert formats for contemporary classical music. And hear how what it demands of you, as organizer and artist, to launch new ways of performing and meeting your audiences.
Music organisations and ensembles from 17 European countries participated in a two-year project (New Music : New Audiences, 2012-2014) on audience engagement with the aim of creating and trying out concert formats in tune with a contemporary audience. The project was supported by the Cultural Programme of EU and explored several aspects of the way that new music can meet an audience.
Sine Tofte Hannibal is General Manager in Danish Composers Society and assisting project manager at their EU supported network of new music ensembles focusing on audience engagement: ‘New Music : New Audiences’. Her task was organizing and performing workshops, planning research, evaluation and documentation of concerts, assisting project development, doing interviews, developing planning tools for creating new concerts and more. Sine has a master in Modern Culture and Cultural Communication, Musicology from the University of Copenhagen. Sine is also working as semiprofessional singer in choirs.
