The Space Between


April 29-30, 2022

McMaster University hosted the inaugural in-person meeting of the Canadian Percussion Network.  This offered keynote presentations, lecture-demonstrations, poster sessions, and an evening concert featuring percussionists from across the country.


The Space Between events  connect percussionist with research useful for our musical lives. These meetings offer a valuable opportunity for leading researchers to share the musical applications of their findings, while percussionists can gain  skills and connections for pursuing research projects with artistic value.

Our inaugural event connected 50+ percussionists from five provinces discussing research ranging from percussion acoustics to gender diversity in percussion studios. Held in conjunction with the annual Ontario Day of Percussion, this two day event helped build on CPN’s virtual meetings to further advance research and research creation related to percussion.

CPN is grateful to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the McMaster Faculty of Humanities for their financial support, which allowed us to offer this event free of charge to participants and attendees.
