CCMC. ‘Free music orchestra’ formed in 1974 in Toronto as the Canadian Creative Music Collective. Only the abbreviation was in use by 1978. Defining itself as ‘a composing ensemble… united by a desire to play music that is fluid, spontaneous, and self-regulating,’ the CCMC, by its instrumentation, by the backgrounds of several of its founders, and by the improvised nature of its music, was initially aligned with the free jazz community.
