The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) holds arguably the world’s most important contemporary music festival in a different city each year.
Much like the Olympics, cities bid to be the host and this year it’s in Vancouver. In this first program of two, we hear from Jordan Nobles, Charlotte Bray, Jocelyn Morlock, and Stefan Prins.
