Introducing SoundMakers!

Over the last 30 years, Soundstreams has commissioned a large body of works from Canadian and international composers. Soundmakers allows you to explore these original compositions in their entirety and to create your own pieces using samples taken from each work. Once your pieces are complete, we hope that you will upload and share them with the SoundMakers community.
