New Music Review Lounge is an initiative of Miso Music Portugal and the Portuguese Music Research & Information Centre. It constitutes a forum for open and free critique, where uncompromising opinions, tastes and new tendencies in music can be discussed in both breadth and depth. It is a place dedicated to contemporary music phenomena and their relation to other areas such as visual arts, dance, architecture, literature, new technologies, psychology or sociology. Our aim is to open a vivid discussion and rejoin contemporary music with other art forms and disciplines of human activity.

In our opinion music constitutes a potent social force. A critic, although frequently expressing his / her own subjective opinions, is a mediator between the composer, performer and the audience. Therefore our reviews intend to analyze and mention the technical elements and expressive aspects of composition and performance as well as their possible impact on the public. We will publish regularly creative descriptions and analysis of 20th century and contemporary musical works, performances and events, with special focus on Portuguese creation.

Nowadays music has no boundaries and there are dozens of interesting music phenomena waiting to be described and discussed.
