Arraymusic’s mission is to ignite and sustain a passion for contemporary Canadian musical art within an equitable, international, interdisciplinary context. Three interrelated programs define what Array does, why we do it and how we realize our artistic, organizational, and community-based goals:
- Array’s Contemporary Music Program produces, presents and supports diverse work on the cutting edges of current musical/sound art practice;
- Array’s Creative Music Hub utilizes the Array Space to foster a thriving, inclusive contemporary music and art scene; and
- Array For All engages diverse and equity seeking audiences through innovative programs.
Arraymusic believes that experiencing art can give rise to real change and that if one engages art fully, subtle but profound positive transformations can take place that can impact communities and enhance our quality of life. Arraymusic is devoted to co-creating and presenting speculative new music—music that creates more questions than answers (for both the musicians involved and for listeners).
We believe that through sharing music which finds wonder in the discovery of the unexpected, the imagination is stimulated, questions are asked, alternative ways of thinking are considered, and a sharing of ideas takes place. We are devoted to presenting music that draws listeners in, and encourages them to embrace musical experiences as experimental (both words derived from the Latin root expiri—‘to try’) and know that they are active, co-creative participants in the experience. Music focused on this kind of productive interaction is not confined to any style, methodology or genre. Arraymusic embraces and nurtures work that is radically in-between. Learn more about Array at www.arraymusic.ca.
EQUITY: Equity is the single most important challenge in today’s contemporary music scene, and our work as artists, artistic directors, and curators cannot be separated from the social and political contexts in which we all live and create. Arraymusic has committed to an Equity Action Plan to address this challenge.
