Canadian New Music Network

The Canadian New Music Network (CNMN) / Réseau canadien pour les musiques nouvelles (RCMN) is a network of artists, ensembles, orchestras, production companies, presenters, record labels, music educators, music media, musicologists, music lovers and fans who believe in the importance and value of creative music making in Canadian society.

The CNMN was founded in November 2005, after almost 3 years of discussions with the national new music community.

What is New Music?

Canadian living art music comes from many cultural traditions and musical practices (see list below). What brings us together is our belief in the intrinsic value of contemporary musical creativity, both to individuals and to the larger society. Our goal is to support the creation of music that is about expanding our means of personal and sonic expression, music that is about the art of listening.

A partial inventory of music practices that can be defined as “New Music”: Acoustic Ecology / Avant-garde music / Co-improvisation / Contemporary chamber music / Contemporary opera Contemporary orchestral music / Contemporary vocal and choral music / Computer music / Electroacoustic music / Electronica Experimental music / Experimental world music / Free improvisation / Invented instruments / Microtonal music / Musique actuelle / Radio art / Sound art / Uncategorisable musical practices
