By finding audiences and suitable venues for performance of this music, we help the composers reach a wider group of people, and, in turn, expose a greater portion of the general public to the rich diversity of contemporary music. Our core values focus on creativity and experimentation; multi-disciplinary exploration; and the sharing, communication, and outreach afforded by artistic exchange. Since we encourage risk-taking, we recognize that both successful and less successful experimentation is valuable in the process of artistic growth. The Arraymusic ensemble, our most visible program, is an eight-member performing group recognized worldwide for its innovative programming and virtuosic performance. Known for searching out composers with highly individual voices, the ensemble has a unique and eclectic repertoire, including internationally recognized composers such as John Cage, Steve Reich, James Tenney, and Claude Vivier, and also encompassing an extensive body of contemporary Canadian work.
To provide composers with an environment in which they are free to take risks, challenge themselves, and push the traditional boundaries of musical expression.
