As part of our ongoing Earmark series, we chat with new CMC Associate Composer Ian Cusson. Ian is a composer of art song, opera and orchestral work. I was delighted to get to know him a few years ago. His experience working with text was a fascinating part of our early conversations as he explores the intersection of Western and Indigenous cultures.

In this edition of Earmark we get to know CMC Associate Composer Owen Bloomfield. Owen is an active composer and music educator with a deep connection to his community in Cambridge. Increasingly, a community-engaged skill set is vital to any artist establishing their practice. Artists in dense urban centres can on occasion confine themselves to “professional” spaces, and neglect developing arts facilitation skills with folks of varying abilities and skill levels.
