Circuit Musiques contemporaines

/ Editor(s): Maxime McKinley (Rédacteur en chef) Paul Bazin (Secrétaire de rédaction)



Circuit was founded in 1989 at the behest of Lorraine Vaillancourt, founder and director of Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (in residence at Université de Montréal), and of Jean-Jacques Nattiez, its first editor in chief. Circuit publishes articles, documents and case files in French and English on contemporary music from Quebec, North America and abroad. Designed as an arts journal as well as an object of aesthetic reflection, it is aimed at all those who have an interest in contemporary musical and artistic creation issues. The journal is called Circuit after Serge Garant (1929-1986), important figure of Quebec's musical scene and composer of three musical pieces of the same name.
