The CMC's Influences of Many Musics Minisite

A few months ago, the Canadian Music Centre website added a new area called Influences of Many Musics. This mini-site (with the option of flash or html navigation) provides an interactive introduction to the sounds and influences of Canadian music. Organized into areas titled Distant Timbres, Voices Afar, Other Musics, Cultural Inspiration, and Reflecting Canada, you can click on areas of the globe representing influences on Canadian music and then hear excerpts, read interviews, and see photos of various composers.

Although Influences of Many Musics only provides a small snapshot of 37 of the hundreds of composers whose music is available at the CMC, this is nevertheless a very engaging introduction to what the Canadian Music Centre is all about and has to offer.
