Music for the New World is a project of the Onassis Cultural Centre that aims to create a new kind of music, taking as its starting point a particular social context. It is a collaboration between the Onassis Cultural Centre, ‘Ohi Pezoume’ Performing Arts Company, which brings along a wealth of experiences from their project Dourgouti Island Hotel, and the contemporary music ensemble ARTéfacts.

Music for the New World takes the neighbourhood and the content of Dourgouti Island Hotel project as ‘libretti’ that function as starting points and thematic core for the creation of new music compositions.

The goal here is not to create narrative works or programme music, in the traditional sense. Instead, it aims to spur musical thinking about how a natural, urban reality and history is processed into orchestral music.

The project will result in a series of concerts, onsite performances and documentary productions within the span of two years.
