The Forum of Contemporary Music Leipzig is a non-profit institution, which functions as a platform for activities related to the contemporary music scene in the narrower and broader understanding. The FZML occurs as host and organizer as well as an intermediary, which means it promotes discussion on new music as well as contacts between it and other arts.
Besides several concerts and events beyond traditional formats, the FZML organized the international festival »CAGE100« that took place in the years 2012 and 2013. It was consisting of more than 100 individual events around the world and became the biggest project since the foundation of the FZML.
The Forum of Contemporary Music Leipzig celebrated the 25th anniversary of its foundation with the festival »ALTZEIT NEU« in 2016. For three days the history of the Forum was displayed through different media such as music, electronics, poetry or film. The artistic director of the FZML is Thomas Christoph Heyde.
