Société des arts libres et actuels (SALA)

Presenter / Montréal (Québec)

Peter Burton, executive director

The Suoni Per Il Popolo is part of a broad international effort that has been undertaken by critics, academics, audiences, presenters and artists to redefine understanding of contemporary avant-garde music away from a strictly European based avant-garde classical approach to a more plural one that fully acknowledges that experimental creative activity takes place within a variety of cultural, ethnic and economic contexts. This vision promotes the view that although artists regularly appropriate influences from outside their own culture, these exchanges should take place between groups with fair access to training, funding, support and recognition.
