Qwartz Electronic Music Awards is a promotional and supportive program dedicated to new and electronic music. It recognizes and awards grants to independent labels and artists. It brings together the different waves of new and electronic music, from the most demanding to the most festive, from electro-acoustic to techno. Qwartz creates and enhances the links between the 20th century’s pioneers and the contemporary artists using new technologies in their work. The program rewards the different aspects of digital culture: music, graphic-design, audiovisuals and graphics, technological innovation, and new media arts.
Two international contests are held each year in order to promote, support and enhance the work of independent artists and labels. The first is dedicated to music and the second one to new media arts.
An annual event takes place in Paris. Besides the Awards Ceremony, Qwartz organizes an International New and Electronic Music Market, concerts, parties and conferences.

Famous quotes containing the words music and/or electronic:
“I cannot say what poetry is; I know that our sufferings and our concentrated joy, our states of plunging far and dark and turning to come back to the worldso that the moment of intense turning seems still and universalall are here, in a music like the music of our time, like the hero and like the anonymous forgotten; and there is an exchange here in which our lives are met, and created.”
—Muriel Rukeyser (19131980)
“The car as we know it is on the way out. To a large extent, I deplore its passing, for as a basically old- fashioned machine, it enshrines a basically old-fashioned idea: freedom. In terms of pollution, noise and human life, the price of that freedom may be high, but perhaps the car, by the very muddle and confusion it causes, may be holding back the remorseless spread of the regimented, electronic society.”
—J.G. (James Graham)
