Since its inception, Diaphonique has done many valuable things including helping to invite the most important figures from both countries to go to the other country, all sort of excellent projects regarding education and indeed they have helped to commission my opera "Written on skin" premiered in Aix-en-Provence festival in July 2012.
I think it is absolutely essential that this valuable and important entreprise continues long into the future so that we can continue to share our different and very valuable types of modern music across the Channel.

George Benjamin, Composer


Diaphonique aims to finance and support projects which contribute to spread French contemporary music in the UK and British contemporary music in France. The goal of this initiative is not only to raise funds for creators and producers, but also to promote partnerships between French and British organizations and to foster exchanges and dialogue between France and the UK.
