Somewhere There Presents: MUSIC(in)GALLERIES
Live Creative Music in Twenty Queen Street West Art Galleries For the third year in a row, MUSIC(in)GALLERIES will transform the Queen Street West art gallery district into a walking tour of Toronto’s vibrant scene of creative improvised music. At no cost to the public, small groups of musicians will enliven the distinct acoustic spaces of twenty gallery spaces between Trinity Bellwoods Park and Gladstone Avenue with short sets of live music during one afternoon in July; the first group will start at 1pm in the easternmost gallery, with subsequent sets starting at ten-minute intervals, moving westward. The event route ends at the Gladstone Melody Bar where, following the final set by Christine Duncan’s inimitable Element Choir, the 55 MUSIC(in)GALLERIES musicians as well as audience members are welcome for a late-afternoon event afterparty.
Event Details: Free to the public – each set will be approximately twenty-five minutes

Speakers Series: Indigenous Pollinators, Habitat and Co-evolution
Thursday July 17, 7:00 p.m: “Barcodes and Bees?”
Featuring Professor Laurence Packer (York University) and “Resonating Bodies” artists.
Dr. Laurence Packer, Professor of Biology and Environmental Studies at York University, author of “A Guide to Toronto’s Pollinators” (published by the David Suzuki Foundation) will discuss pollinator diversity and pollinator-habitat relationships, emphasizing recent research regarding DNA barcode data in understanding the bees of Canada. Artists Sarah Peebles, Rob King, Anne Barros and Robert Cruickshank will be present to discuss their interdisciplinary work, “Resonating Bodies - Bumble Domicile” in this context. Topics include visualization of pollen gathering data, ultraviolet video, the electroforming process, and audio transformations of bee sounds. Resonating Bodies is a series of mixed media installations and community outreach projects which focus on the biodiversity of pollinators indigenous to the ecosystems of the Greater Toronto Area. Conceived by Sarah Peebles with Rob King, Rob Cruickshank and Anne Barros, the installations illuminate aspects of local biodiversity, such as bumblebee colonies and their foraging activities, ultraviolet bee vision, and pollinator/plant co-evolution.

“Pollinator Series: Hive Study” for room and solo performer
MERCER UNION A Centre For Contemporary Visual Art
Sound Performance/installation for computer, multiple speaker drivers, mixing bowls,
Hive Study is a quasi-improvisational, quasi-chance performance piece/installation transforming the Mercer Union gallery space into a sonic honey bee hive featuring sounds of masses of bees recorded inside glass jugs and hives, cicada, and airplanes. Using material initially recorded over several days near Wellington, New Zealand at Lindsay's Apieries, Peebles mixes, layers, manipulates and projects these sounds alongside the shoh — the Japanese mouth-organ used in gagaku (court music) which has made use of beeswax for the past 1,500 years. You are invited to roam about the space, nap or sit where you like - BYO cushions, sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, etc.
This project is part of the Canada Council's Music in Alternative Spaces program.
