The Great Lakes Project Upcoming is the Indigenous Music Creators Project, an innovative, music-driven initiative that supports Indigenous music creators that seek to create and/or score music for dance, theatre, and hybrid performance forms.
This project provides a stimulus to Indigenous musicians, singers, music creators and composers in a highly interactive and intimate learning environment. Red Sky's Artistic Director Sandra Laronde and Array Music Director Rick Sacks collaborate and share resources to realize Laronde's vision of this program. Our focus remains on creators, and those who wish to accelerate the growth of contemporary Indigenous music composition in Canada. This intimate peer-to-peer environment will also include movement-based work, stills, video and film as it relates to music composition.
