Musiques Nouvelles is a Belgian contemporary ensemble born in 1962 and established in Mons since 1998. It is led by the cellist, composer and conductor Jean-Paul Dessy.

Musiques Nouvelles has been developing, highlighting and promoting contemporary music in all its formal, geographic and cultural diversity, and has, over the years, vastly increased its commissions and productions in Belgium and worldwide.

At both national and international festivals, within inventive European projects (ECO/European Contemporary Orchestra, New:Music New:Audiences), Musiques Nouvelles invests its music with an abundant sense of feeling and emotion. It combines timelessness with audacity, explores emerging soundscapes, invents types of concerts that expand and deepen listening habits and supports creative artists from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
Every season, Musiques Nouvelles gives around fifty concerts and transdisciplinary performances (video, dance, literature, electronic arts, installations, extended acoustic experiences, conferences, spirituality…)

Since 2015 Musiques Nouvelles has been in residency in a new space completely dedicated to the sound called ARSONIC and that is part of MARS - Mons arts de la scène
