We attempt to provide coverage for artists of all ages, and of both sexes, and to present work from all geographical and cultural sectors of Canada. We also provide a more limited view of work from Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia and the Americas.
We have produced the Musicworks recording with each issue since Number 23 in 1983. This is an ongoing recording project unparalleled in Canadian musical history. Many of our selections are the only available recordings of works by the artiststs who composed them. Whenever possible we include recordings that have never been released elsewhere.
We were the first magazine in the world to regularly issue a recording in conjunction with a magazine. We are still the only one dealing with contemporary music that produces recordings in conjunction with a regular publication schedule. Our recordings form an essential element of the magazine.
