OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We are a group of composers actively seeking to provide new experiences for audiences and performers everywhere. Our initiative includes members across the globe creating fresh and engaging new music for all types of ensembles and media, with various concentrations in both acoustic and electronic music. We strive to push the limits of what defines music through experimental and conventional means.
The Millennium Composers Initiative is an ever-changing and expanding group that serves to represent composers at the beginning of their professional careers, regardless of their aesthetic, style, or background. The initiative was founded by Josh Trentadue and Duncan Petersen-Jones in 2018, beginning as a group of five young composers based in the United States. Since then, its member base has rapidly expanded and currently comprises a total of 37 different composers from all around the world.
Each of MCI's members have individually attended world-renowned festivals, conferences, institutes, and workshops. In addition, each of them has also had the opportunity to collaborate with world-renowned ensembles, directors, artists, and performers of all kinds through new commissions, world premieres, additional performances, and other collaborative projects. In addition, MCI has continued to represent its composers in the form of collaborative concerts with chamber groups across the United States and appearances at various music conferences.
