The impuls Academy 2025 is welcoming as participants composers, electronic artists, vocalists, instrumentalists as well as already existing ensembles, chamber music formations and string quartets this year. The impuls Academy is closely interlinked with the impuls Festival, which will see its 9th edition in 2025.

The current Call for the impuls Composition Competition is open for entries from May 31st to October 31st, 2024. Conditions and further information for Application will be published by May 31st.

impuls promotes and supports young composers not only within its Academy, but also through the international impuls Composition Competition.

impuls commissions new works for ensemble every second year from young composers selected by a jury. Subsequently these composers are invited to take part in the impuls Composition Workshop in Vienna and Graz – where their new works are collectively rehearsed and discussed extensively with musicians of world-class ensembles such as Klangforum Wien – as well as to the premiere of their new pieces within the impuls Academy and Festival in Graz. impuls also intends to support the composers´ works beyond that point through recordings respectively broadcasting, music communication programs and additional concerts.
