Art Song Lab (ASL) is a collaborative institute facilitating creative interaction between writers, composers, and performers from around the world to advance the genre of contemporary art song. Offering a 6-month collaborative opportunity which culminates in a week-long intensive program, ASL sees its participating artists converge in Vancouver each summer for an annual public performance premiering new works.

ASL enables composers and writers who are eager to broaden their creative experiences to engage with other disciplines and artistic traditions. Our structure is designed to stimulate participants’ individual crafts while cultivating conversations among partners and the public. As writers, composers, performers and listeners connect, they absorb each others’ visceral materials into diversely creative processes. The resulting works are direct expressions of contemporary experience. Since its conception in 2011, ASL has connected 48 writers with 60 composers, presenting world premiers of 72 new art songs.
