COMMUTE (COMposition and MUsic TEchnology) is a festival of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, which focuses on sound, visual and music technology. It offers new works from the Department of Composition and Improvisational Music which have been combined to concerts for the audience. In addition to student pieces, the festival includes works by outstanding musicians and artists both domestically and internationally. From the very beginning, the idea of the festival has been to combine existing literature, professional experience and fresh creative flashes of young people, to create a ground and an outlet for synergy.
