Like most national MICs (music information centres) they offer support to
composers from or working in the country. Performances on the recordings
could be from any source -- studio recordings, CBC concert recordings, the
composer's own recordings (from a variety of sources), the CMC's own label
(CentreDiscs), etc. -- and have nothing (directly) to do with the gov.
The gov. does however support the institution's activities, which include
promoting recordings (through CD sales, online promo, etc.) of their
Associate Composers, and, by extension, of all Canadian composers.
Stay tuned for the CEC's Concordia Archival Project (CAP)...
