A group of promising young composers push the boundaries of their own musical imagination for five days, with expert coaching from top artists and teachers. Sounds like music to your ears? It is! SoundMine is an international internship through which we help composers develop their qualities even further. We explore new styles and encourage you to experiment with improvisation and notation. We also look for connections between acoustic instruments and electronics.

And there is more: as a composer, you will have the opportunity to attend live rehearsals and perform your own work. You work towards that all week.

For whom

Young people aged 15 and up and adults with a thorough knowledge of music and a passion for composing and creating.


We announce the registration period each spring through our own channels and those of our partners. The number of places is limited. Musica makes the selection together with the coaches involved. We do this on the basis of your profile, your personal motivation, and the work you submit (audio, video or score).
