Futures

Artists can develop their practice through developing original material for the professional stage, arranging, recording/mixing & mastering, releasing music and expanding their industry networks.

Supported by SIMA’s marketing and publicity team, participants are featured in our Jazz:Now performance program. In 2020 due to Covid-19 the Sonic Futures program was postponed until 2021.
