Ottawa Experimental Music
This week in the Future of Ottawa series, we’re taking a deep dive into four of Ottawa’s most unique music communities—what they’re like now and where things are heading. Read on for a guest post from Adriana Ciccone on the future of experimental music in Ottawa.
Ottawa Experimental Music (OEM) has been working tirelessly to shine light on Ottawa artists that might otherwise be in the shadows.
