The promotion of contemporary music is a key aspect of the French music scene. Supporting what's « next » in classical music, creating international opportunities for composers, editors and music ensembles are some of the priorities for SACEM and BureauExport. Many tools serve this purpose: composer residencies abroad, financial support for international touring and showcases, partnerships with international festivals… How are these new tools helpful, and what are the concrete best practice to learn from actors of the French contemporary music scene in terms of international activity?
