Very few broadcasts feature contemporary music, not to mention contemporary music from Austria. Generating interest for the diversity of this genre and providing an outlet is at the heart of micatonal’s programming.


A unique feature of micatonal is the integration of the broadcasts with the mica – music database, which is the largest database of contemporary Austrian music available. Almost every track is linked to the corresponding entry in the database, where interested listeners can search through a host of information on the composition, performers, composers, instrumentation, etc. With over 42,000 compositions in the directory, the mica – music database is the most important international source of comprehensive information on Austrian-based composers, performers and ensembles.

Once a month she talks about this event in her program, plays music examples and invites contributors of these concerts to her show.


Kofomi – Komponistenforum Mittersill
The Kofomi network for exchange, information and communication is a driving force in the contemporary Austrian music scene.
