The association was founded on the 14thof November 1987.
The purposes of the association are to nurture the interests of Faroese composers, to protect their rights and to actively seek to improve the composers’ artistic and financial circumstances.
The association embraces all genres and is divided into two sections – one for classical and contemporary music (new written music) and one for rhythmical/popular music.
One of the association’s main tasks is to arrange the festival “Summartónar”, which is an annual festival for Contemporary and Classical music.
The Association of Faroese Composers is a member of ISCM (http://www.iscm.org/). (read more)
The FFT board consists of four active composers.
