New Music Engine

New Music Engine is an online system for managing calls for submissions and new music opportunities. Our goal is to connect composers and artists with organizations that provide new music opportunities.

 For composers and artists, New Music Engine is an easy way to submit your creative work to competitions, festivals, and general calls for submissions. With an account, artists can create a public profile to help promote their work, and of course, joining New Music Engine is completely free!

 For organizers, the New Music Engine website makes managing calls for submissions extremely easy and affordable. It’s particularly helpful, especially when adjudicators are spread out all over the world, because it keeps all of the submissions in one system. With, there’s no more tracking down audio files on different file systems like Dropbox or Google drive, dealing with permissions issues, file naming, or file formats. Additionally, New Music Engine provides customizable adjudication rubrics and administrative tools. Currently, all of Society of Composers, Inc. calls use New Music Engine for all of their opportunities from their Student SCI/ASCAP competitions to their many conferences. Whether you are looking for a recital piece or organizing a festival of new music, New Music Engine makes it easy to manage high volumes of submissions.
