The 20th anniversary of the Composers' Forum is the occasion of an important renewal, because it is a question of formalizing the evolution of the association through a change of name which reflects the diversity of its members but also the activities which structure its influence. Consequently, the Forum des Compositeurs becomes the Forum de la Création Musicale.
With each edition of the LOOP festival, the FCM tries to offer you an exhaustive overview of contemporary musical news in FWB without trying to identify a particular theme, which would reduce the range of proposals and the desire to experiment of the artists who perform there and which you can discover in our detailed program.
