ICMC 2021 Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Santiago, Chile

July 25th-31st, 2021


Given the current situation of the pandemic worldwide, the local organizing committee, in conjunction with officials from the ICMA and the hosting institution, have decided to convert the 2021 ICMC to an on-line only meeting. We are very aware of the difficulties that this decision especially produces in terms of music presentation and installations, but we strongly believe that this is the only option we have at this point. Even with the beginning of COVID-19 vaccinations, social distancing, masks and occupation limits will still be enforced for concerts and talks and there is no guarantee that in-person activities will be able to resume in a normal fashion by July.

While we are very sad that we won’t have the opportunity to meet and listen to each other in-person, we believe that this on-line format, something unparalleled in ICMC’s history, creates tremendous opportunities for the future. We will work very hard to ensure the best possible ICMC experience for all attendees, including innovative means of presenting music and installations. One example of the actions that we are taking is the special call for musical XR works on Mozilla Hubs.
