Казань 2020

Institutе of Music Initiatives (IMI) is an independent nonprofit organization. Our priority is to foster the development of the music industry in Russia. We organize our work alongside the following initiatives:

IMI.Journal is an online magazine covering the music industry in Russia.

IMI.Seminars is a professional development program that covers various professions within the music industry. We create an environment for dialogue and exchange of experience across the music world. We invite influential experts to lead IMI.Seminars meant to attract participants who already have professional experience and look to develop their skills. Past seminars include: Guitar experimentation by Michael Rother and Franz Bargmann; Insights of touring sound engineering by Ilya Lukashev; Soundchecking by Vladimir Gubatov.

IMI.Research and Publishing focuses on providing in-depth research on how music industry operates as well as translating existing profound researches and books into Russian.

IMI.Residence was a two-week programme for musicians which took place in July 2019. We’ve designed an environment where artists can create music, gain knowledge, share experiences and boost self-confidence. It was a space made for creativity, where one can live, play, and perform. The musicians were guided by experienced mentors, professional musicians, producers, and sound engineers.

IMI.Scene is an IMI offsite initiative whose goal is to establish links between industry representatives from different cities. We want to understand how the participants of local scenes live, as well as introduce them to experts who will share their experience with the local music community and visit IMI showcase.
