Welcome to the CEC
Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC)
Offering an alternative to pre-fab commercial products, DIY audio and sound art practices celebrate the unique visions and needs of the individual artist. Some of these original voices are featured through pieces about the people making up the community, about their instruments and artistic practice, about the philosophical intentions and ramifications of DIY practices.
