Some years ago, we began to be aware that our immediate environment was in need of an international festival without regional limitations. In 2004, the international festival of contemporary music Musica Danubiana, which was first organised by the Slovene section of the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) in 1998, was transformed and renamed the UNICUM international festival of contemporary music, taking place biannually.
The festival, which in the future will enter the consciousness of all of those who are in any way interested in contemporary-new creativity, is characterised by openness and abundant new opportunities. Of particular importance is the fact that the festival provides ample opportunities for the youngest generation of Slovene composers to present themselves. The international successes already achieved by young composers confirm that the coming generation must also have ongoing opportunities for artistic and ideological confrontations.

The key role of our international activities is to exchange information on the international level and to encourage the participation of our members in international festivals, symposiums, congresses and music trade fairs in Europe and throughout the world. We also endeavour to inform the general public and comparable professional institutions about our activities, in particular about concerts with new works by Slovene composers, and to arrange exchange concerts. Within the framework of international activities, particular mention should be made of the Society’s membership of the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) and the European Composers Federation (ECF).
