Canadian Composers Series

Another Timbre Canadian Composers Series

Highly acclaimed series focusing on experimental music in Canada. The first five CDs in the series were released in February 2017, along with a 120-page book containing interviews with all the composers featured in the series and an introductory essay by Nick Storring.

Five more CDs will be released early in 2018 to complete the series.

“Another Timbre really has outdone itself with this outstandingly impressive collection of discs.”  5:4

“The release of this Canadian series will undoubtedly come to be viewed as a landmark event.” John Eyles
