Who are we?

Created in 2002 as a non-profit making body, Forum des compositeurs (Composer’s Forum) is an association that currently brings together about forty composers and performers living in French-speaking Belgium.  

The purpose of our organization is to promote contemporary music created in Belgium’s French-speaking community (often referred to as Wallonia-Brussels Community), to draw up recommendations with a view to improve the composers' status, and to serve as a link between all those involved with our music.

On the other hand Forum des compositeurs aims at developing a space for expression  and creating new opportunities for composers.  Two achievements in that respect have been the launching of a publication, Les Carnets du Forum (in French), and the organization of a new music event, the LOOP Festival which has been taking place every year around end November since 2008 at Brussels venue L’Espace Senghor.  Concerned with the development of the next generation, Forum des compositeurs is also organizing a young composers workshop since 2010 in partnership with Ensemble Sturm und Klang and the SBAM.

On the international level, we are active since 2008 in 3 main networks:

With the help of WBM and the Belgian authors right society SABAM, Forum des compositeurs has taken part in the EU-funded RE:NEW MUSIC (2008-10) and NEW AUD (2012-14) projects, promoting repertoire exchange and working on audience development together with 31 ensembles of 17 European countries.  Partners involved in our community are Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles, Ensemble ON, Ensemble 21, and Ensemble Sturm und Klang. The network is currently working on its third project.

Since the splitting of the Belgian ISCM-section, Forum des compositeurs has been representing the Belgian French-Speaking community within the International Society for Contemporary Music as an affiliated member since 2009 and as a full member since 2012.  That same year, our association participated in the organization of the ISCM World New Music Days in Belgium, initiated by the Flemish section ISCM-Flanders.

Forum des compositeurs is also a member of the European Song-writers and Composers Alliance (ECSA), an association representing the interests of more than 23.000 music writers of art & classical music, film & audiovisual music and popular music, in 22 European countries.
