The 60th International Rostrum of Composers (IRC), a flagship programme of the International Music Council, was held in Prague, from May 28 to 31, 2013. The aim of this competition is to promote contemporary music through broadcasting. In the general category, Not I (2010) for soprano (or mezzo-soprano), chamber ensemble and electronics by Polish composer Agata ZUBEL (born 1978) was selected by the delegates as most outstanding. In the “young composers” category, the work selected as most worthy for worldwide broadcasting was So Very Strange (2013), for electronics by young Icelandic composer Úlfur HANSSON (born 1988).
