Austrian Broadcasting Service cutting the musikprotokoll festival - Save the musikprotokoll!

As part of ORF’s (Austrian Broadcasting Service) cost-cutting measures announced in mid-June it became known that it is also planned to axe ORF musikprotokoll at steirischer herbst. musikprotokoll, founded in 1968, is held by Österreichischer Rundfunk every year. It is a co-production of the two programmes Radio Österreich 1 and Radio Steiermark, in which the works performed are broadcast, in co-operation with steirischer herbst festival, subsidised by the European Union.

The festival is dedicated to contemporary, experimental music and intermedia forms of playing and showcases their current artistic trends and outstanding exponents. Integrating Austrian positions into international contexts runs like a red thread through the forty-five-year history of the festival – ORF musikprotokoll is therefore a springboard and important platform for many young and highly renowned artist figures alike – both internationally and throughout Austria.

Abandoning ORF musikprotokoll would mean the end of an important driving force of the Austrian and international New Music scene.
