“At the center of the technological debate is a new kind of listener…an uninvited guest at the banquet of the arts, one whose presence threatens the familiar hierarchical setting of the musical establishment.”
At 7:15pm on Monday September 8th, the public is invited to check out a remix of Glenn Gould by Billy Iannaci and Andrew Testa, held in the lobby of the Young Centre for the Performing Arts in the Distillery District under the auspices of the Glenn Gould Estate, just before a ticketed performance of “Glenn” by Soul Pepper Theatre that evening.
Without irony, we invite artists interested in collaborative opportunities organized by BeMused Network to meet up before the free performance, and join us afterwards in cross-disciplinary conversations inspired by the “Uninvited Guests” project. Read on…

One of the primary purposes of BeMused Network is to be a catalyst for sustainable change in the performing arts community. Our vision encompasses all the performing arts, and we have heard from many artists that they want to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries.
Co-creation is any act of collective creativity that is experienced jointly by two or more people. It is a special case of collaboration where the intent is to create something that is not known in advance. (Source: P2P Foundation)
Co:Lab is an initiative being developed with the spirit of co-creation and intra-disciplinary collaboration. To get things rolling, artists from all disciplines are invited to join us at the launch of “Uninvited Guests”, a musical project under the auspices of the Glenn Gould Estate. At this event, details about collaborative opportunities will be announced, and the topic will serve as a catalyst for our first Co:Lab meeting in the Distillery District.
The details are still coming together, but if Co:Lab sounds like your cup of tea, please RSVP and save the date.
