Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art has organized the third Tehran Contemporary Music Festival.
TCMF is an international event in the fields of contemporary  music. It is an independent cultural and artistic event held annually with lectures and performances including experimental and improvisational presentations.
It opened Friday and will run through April 27 at the TMoCA and three other venues namely Azadi Tower, Roudaki Hall and Hafez Hall, Mehr News Agency reported on its Persian website.
Musicians from Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany and Poland are attending. A total of 130 musicians in 27 ensembles have entered the lineup of the event.
Though partly closed due to renovating operations, Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art hosted two inaugural performances on Friday. ‘Steel Plates Project’ was one. Based on a concept by the 14th- and 15th-century Iranian musician Abd al-Qadir Maraghi, the project was designed by musician, music researcher and maker of ney, tanbur, tar and setar Seyfollah Shekari who has remade several ancient music instruments.
