Prix 2021: Exploring and composing music worldwide

Exploring new sounds - with great joy in experimentation and a healthy dose of passion.

| | |

In honor of Japanese music legend Isao Tomita, who has since passed away, TOMITA information Hub and Prix Ars Electronica are awarding the Isao Tomita Special Prize to dedicated musicians for the first time this year. Khyam Allami and Counterpoint have developed “Apotome,” a freely available online tool for exploring and composing music outside the Western sound space. The project brings together “traditional” and “classical” knowledge with digital technology while expanding the possibilities of individual musicians. Thanks to the possibility of networking, “Apotome” lays the foundations for an international sonic exchange of musicians around the world.
