Centre d'expérimentation musicale (CEM)

Founded in 1980, the Centre d’expérimentation musicale (CEM) aims at fostering the growth of emerging and new music’s scene in Saguenay. With its creation, production, dissemination and training activities, the CEM offers professional support for creators in an environment fostering research and musical exploration. True laboratory in which the style’s hybridization is put forward, the CEM’s artistic work breaks down barriers between avant-garde rock, electronic music, jazz, contemporary music, songwriting, noise music, world music and electroacoustic. Concert music and digital production are CEM’s main fields of work.
