An inter-generational interview series

Generations/Conversations was launched in late 2012 to create opportunities for different generations of composers to come into dialogue about their creative practices, histories, and aspirations. Through the administration of the project, CMC Ontario pairs young volunteers with established or senior composers. After some initial research, the young participant conducts and records an interview with their composer and then transcribes the interview for inclusion in our newsletter, Ontario Notations. You can click here to view the first issue of Notations to feature Generations/Conversations.
