The Board of Directors approved unanimously the agenda of the General Assembly 2019 as well as the minutes from the 2018 General Assembly in Beijing/ China, which was made available to all members.

In the moral report 2018, President Marek Choloniewski reminded that ICEM is working towards the expansion of the number of its members, with new National Federations or Organization Institution Members, especially in countries where there are non present. Also, he mentioned the importance for each member to be in good standing so that they met the dues schedule and secondly and most importantly, to be active by taking part in the ICEM activities.

In the activities report, the Secretary Panayiotis Kokoras gave a report on the ICEM concerts organized by the following members: Tempo Reale, FeBeME, Spectro, HELMCA, EMAC, Miso Music, PSeME, FARME, promoting more than 70 performances among members, as well as the Prix CIME Competition and the CIME-ICEM Double CD 2018 by Audiomat. The president encouraged the development of projects among federations. The Board of Directors unanimously approved the moral report, the activities report, and the financial report.

Next, the board of directors discussed on the activities for 2020, including the next General Assembly candidacies, the development of new and existing projects as well as the provisional budget 2020. Some of the upcoming projects for 2020 include: ICEM concert at Spring in Havana 2020 by Cuban National Federation, ICEM concert by Tempo Reale in Italy, ICEM participation at Música Viva Festival 2020 at O’culto da Ajuda in Lisbon, ICEM concerts by FeBeME in Belgium, Audiomat CD release ICEM Krakow 2019, Prix CIME follow-up with residencies and further dissemination of the winning works, ICEM concert at Audio Art Festival in Krakow by PSeME, ICEM participation at the annual festival of HELMCA. Miguel Azguime reminded us about the scope and history of the International Rostrum of Electroacoustic Music (IREM). The last 11th edition of IREM took place in Lisbon, December 17-20, 2007, hosted by the Portuguese federation MISO MUSIC. The director of Miso Music, Miguel Azguime, is exploring the possibility to organize the 12th edition in 2021 or 2022.

Due to the passing of Francoise Barrière (Treasure of ICEM), the board of directors proposed Todor Todoroff (President of FeBeME, Belgian National Federation) as the next treasurer and Christian Clozier as treasurer adjunct for 2019-2020. 

The next item on the agenda was the proposals for admission from new members. The board discussed two proposed ICEM members due from last year’s General Assembly, by Musiques & Recherches in Ohain/Belgium (Director Annette Vande Gorne) and DME (Dias de Música Electroacústica) in Lisbon/ Portugal (Director Jaime Reis), as well as a new proposal from the Society for Electro-acoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS). Additionally, the board discussed the status of inactive members such as the Finnish and Swiss federations. The board will make efforts to re-enact communication and collaboration with these members and send official letters. The cancellation of these members will be considered during the next GA if no further communication has been established. The GA decided to postpone for one more year the probationary period for the Australian Computer Music Association (ACMA) with president Lindsay Vickery while looking for better communication and collaboration with this member.

The next item was the proposal of a new Honorary Member. The board of directors agreed to propose several candidates to be considered for next GA; proposed names Candido Lima (by Miso Music) and Leo Cupper (by FeBeME).

In the closing of the board of directors, Miguel Azguime and other board members congratulated the work of the main board and acknowledged the good progress that has been made in the last years.

Saturday, 12 of October 2019, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM, General Assembly

The General Assembly approved the Minutes 2018 in Beijing/ China. The GA discussed the proposals of the Board of Directors with main points; the balance sheet 2019, the activities report 2019, as well as the project of activities 2020, and provisional budget 2020. All the proposals were approved. The GA voted unanimously on the reports and activities 2019 and 2020.

Then, Panayiotis Kokoras, coordinator of the Prix CIME competition, reported on Prix CIME 2019 and announced the jury deliberations.

The next item on the agenda was the vote for a new treasurer. Due to the passing of Francoise Barrière (Treasurer of ICEM), the GA unanimously voted Todor Todoroff as the next ICEM Treasurer, and Christian Clozier as Treasurer adjunct, for the remaining of the main board’s period. The president also reminded us that the next GA would elect the new main board for the period 2020-2023. 

The next item of the General Assembly was the reports from the National Federations and Organization Institution Members. In turn, each Federation or OIM made a report on the activities and the situation of electroacoustic music in their country. The reports were presented with the following order:

TEMPO REALE by Giulia Sarno, CEMI/UNT by Panayiotis Kokoras, SPECTRO by Martyna Kosecka and Idin Samimi Mofakham, HELMCA by Andreas Mniestris BEAN by Adam Stanovic, UAEM by Alla Zagaykevych, PSeME by Dariusz Mazurowski, MISO MUSIC by Miguel Azguime, GrupLac Investigación y Creación by Catalina Peralta, AMEE and Orquesta del Caos by Jose Manuel Berenguer, AARSOM by Manuel Rocha Iturbide, FeBeME by Todor Todoroff. Moreover, Konstantinos Karathanasis, board member of SEAMUS presented SEAMUS’s candidacy as National Federation of ICEM.

Next, the GA unanimously approved the provisional admission of SEAMUS as a National Federation of the US. After the first probationary year, the next GA will vote for full membership, as indicated in the statutes. Next, the General Assembly voted unanimously to remove Francoise Barrière’s name from the Honorary Presidents list in respect of her and her family’s request. Also, the GA accepted to withdrawal of the MISAME membership.

The items on the agenda of the General Assembly were all considered. The first day of the General Assembly concluded with the final discharge of the board of directors.

Sunday, 13 of October 2019, 9:00AM – 11:30 AM, General Assembly

The first item in the agenda was the proposals of admission from new members. The General Assembly examined the membership application of DME (Dias de Música Electroacústica) in Lisbon/ Portugal (Director Jaime Reis) as well as the Musiques & Recherches in Ohain/ Belgium (Director Annette Vande Gorne). Annette Vande Gorne was able to join the GA in person to present the scopes, history, and activities of M&R. Then the General Assembly voted for the two candidacies as following: 12 yes, 5 no, 1 neutral for DME and 11 yes, 6 no, and 1 neutral for M&R. As a result, both DME and M&R have been accepted as Associate Members per statute article 5.3. As discussed, Associate Members are effective where National Federations are already active, while Organization/Institution members are considered where there is no National Federation, or it is inactive.

Next, the General Assembly examined the proposed places for the next General Assemblies of 2020, 2021, and 2022. FeBeME maintains an interest in organizing the 38th GA 2020 in Brussels; Miso Music in Lisbon proposed to organize one of the upcoming General Assemblies and hopes to combine it with an IREM edition, potentially in 2022; finally Tempo Reale will also examine the possibility of organizing the GA in 2020 in Florence/ Italy. As a result, the Main Board reserves the right to follow-up with the interested members for the upcoming GA 2020. All the members will be informed as soon as possible about the location and dates of the next GA.

Last, members of the GA thanked the host of ICEM GA 2019 Marek Choloniewski, and the president closed the meeting.
