Iceland Music Information Centre (IMIC) is the national centre for Icelandic contemporary and classical music. IMIC is a non-profit society, founded in 1968 with the mission to make Icelandic contemporary compositions easily accessible and to advocate on behalf of Icelandic composers along with supporting the Icelandic contemporary and classical music scene.

OPERATION

 – MUSIC NEEDS TO BE PERFORMED TO BE EXPERIENCED – 

CATALOGUING

AND ARCHIVING

A work registered with IMIC adds to the ever growing collection of Icelandic sheet music. Composers register their works themselves and keep all rights, except otherwise agreed upon. IMIC catalogues the works into a database, either for sale or archiving, which is accessible at shop.mic.is.

SELLING

AND HIRING

Preparation of performance material is one of the main factors in our operation. Orchestra and chamber works for more than 13 instruments are for hire only and require us to prepare scores and parts for performers. Works for fewer than 13 instruments are for sale. Scores to orhcestra and chamber works are available for sale or perusal at our webstore, shop.mic.is and by order at itm@mic.is. For parts contact itm@mic.is

PROMOTION OF

ICELANDIC CONTEMPORARY MUSIC AND COMPOSERS

Promotion of Icelandic composers and works in our catalogue is an important factor in getting the works performed. With that goal in mind we promote Icelandic contemporary works worldwide, – with emphasis on our catalogue – in order to reach performers, conductors, programmers and artistic directors.

CONSULTATION

SUPPORT

DEVELOPMENT

We offer consultation to composers and publish information about opportunities upcoming projects and success.
