BabelScores is a new, French-based website that grew out of the need to diffuse and promote contemporary music from the last 40 years, rendering information more easily available to everyone worldwide. It is a showcase for contemporary music and a powerful tool for present-day composers to promote their work and to receive a fair benefit for it.
BabelScores® looks into and selects the works of the most creative, original and innovative composers of the past few decades, offering a wide catalogue and setting up a powerful circulation platform addressed to instrumentalists, ensembles, orchestras, composers, musicologists, conservatories, universities and festivals throughout the world.
Polish composers who are currently available on BabelScores are: Hanna Kulenty, Jakub Polaczyk, Jagoda Szmytka, and Joanna Wozny. USC students, staff and faculty may explore and use this platform for free until May 22, 2018 by clicking here.
This online portal may be used as a library, a store for purchasing scores, or a rental service, however all copyrights remain in the hands of the composers and/or publishers and users may be directed to publishing houses for some services.
