About Us

The Canadian New Music Network (CNMN) is a membership-based organization connecting and representing everyone involved in Canadian music and sound creation. CNMN's ambition is to gather all Canadian composers, performers, ensembles, orchestras, administrators, service organizations, production companies, presenters, record labels, music educators, music media, musicologists from coast-to-coast and reaching out to members abroad.

People from many cultures and practices create new music in Canada. CNMN’s activities reflect our belief and enthusiasm for the value and benefits of new music for both for individuals and communities as a means of expression and listening. CNMN members practice a vibrant range of musical and/or sonic practices and interests, be they performative or contemplative, live or mediated, professional or enthusiast. CNMN brings us together, catalyzes initiatives and creates resources for a dynamic and nurturing creative environment.
