The series will broadcast interviews with contemporary composers, musicians, bands, and chamber ensembles. Our episodes will show collaborative music projects, panels with musicians discussing cultural topics such as "What is Canadian music?", and videos didactically introducing compositional techniques and concepts. This channel is not committed to one genre, it is focused on sharing any interesting approaches to music being done today.
