Arraymusic is devoted to producing and presenting speculative new music – music that creates more questions than answers (for musicians and listeners alike). We aim to offer experiences that more than please and satisfy. We aim to share music that draws listeners in and encourages them to know they are active, co-creative participants in every musical experience. Speculative music is not confined to a style, methodology or genre. And Arraymusic’s productions and presentations feature artists whose practices radiate this diversity.
