We investigate the heterogeneous dynamics of calcium aluminosilicate liquids across both the peraluminous and peralkaline regimes. Using the isoconfigurational ensemble method we find a clear correlation between dynamical heterogeneities and concentration fluctuations. Regions of high dynamic propensity have higher concentrations of both calcium and aluminum, whereas low propensity regions are silica rich. The isoconfigurational ensemble is found to be a powerful tool for studying the origin of heterogeneous dynamics of industrially relevant glass-forming liquids.
