Art as Medium and Message

As I get to know the artists on BeMused Network, I am reaffirmed in my belief that artists represent some of the most untapped potential in society.

The remounting of Interface by Matthew Roberts by Spectrum Music at Nuit Blanche this weekend is a beautiful experiential essay on the incredible experience that's possible when we remove the barrier between performers and audiences.

The Queer Songbook project involves musicians-turned-ethnomusicologists as they document through songs the music carried members of the LGBTQ through their closeted years.

These are some of the most relevant conversations for us to be having today, and what better way to engage in it but through art as a medium?

Learn more about these two projects and much more below.

Interface at Nuit Blanche

Oct 5 • 7pm-7am • Artscape Youngplace

At the upcoming Nuit Blanche, Spectrum Music is re-mounting Interface: participatory audio-visual installation that uses live performers, electronics, and human touch in synergy to create morphing soundscapes. It will leave you reconsidering the boundaries between performers and audiences.

Get a preview of the experience in our latest blog post.


Lean Arts Applications due October 1, 2014

Startup Founders and Artistic Directors have quite a lot in common: Both are trying to create something new starting with basically nothing. Inspired by the methods and processes of the startup world. This pilot project that will help arts organizations, individual artists, and collectives re-imagine the future of the arts sector.

Details here and here.
Applications due Oct 1, 2014.

Spread the word:

Margaret Lam wonders what concert hopping all day might lead to. Thursday's lineup of Adam Sherkin, Women's Musical Club of Toronto and the Eybler Quartet offers a sample itinerary if you are similarly inclined.

Go concert hopping this Thursday.
The Queer Songbook Orchestra performs songs that capture and document the experience of the LGBTQ community. Their first project focuses on the experience and emotions of being in the closet.

Learn more about their initiative.
