The Music Composition System for the 21st Century

In these pandemic times that tend to isolate and divide us, we decided to organise an online convention that will bring us together and perhaps expand the world community of Opusmodus users, to put us into contact to exchange opinions and experiences.

Opusmodus is not just a software but a real "artistic work” it is a comprehensive computer-aided environment for the whole work of music composition a virtual space where a composer can develop ideas and experiments for projects large and small.

We hope that this first event will materialise into a splendid opportunity to meet and exchange know-how and ideas, to grow together and perhaps help the development of a system that has thousands and more possible strategies within the vast field of artistic expression.

We want to publicly thank all the speakers who offered to talk about their experience in Opusmodus and made themselves available for this experiment which we sincerely hope will become a recurring event.
