In 2014, the Villa of Composers and the Living Composers Project (LCP) signed an agreement for a long-term partnership, with the aims of:

  • listing living or recently deceased composers of written music,
  • publishing the catalogues of works by these composers,
  • creating sustainable links between composers, specifically with regard to the philosophy and offers of the Villa of Composers.

The LCP and the Villa of Composers embarked on their partnership in 2015.

In association with their partnership and shared missions, it should be noted that:

  • the Villa of Composers keeps a digital copy of the LCP database and is authorised to access the database and make publications using the data;
  • the Villa will publish a list of LCP composers on its website based on existing LCP catalogues;
  • the Villa may send out information, in coordination with the LCP's curator, for the attention of listed composers.

This process is currently underway and will be announced on both websites once it is fully up and running.
