CIUT-FM PARTNERS WITH THE ART MUSEUM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO DURING THE NIGHT OF IDEAS


On Thursday, January 25th, beginning at 10:30pm through to Friday, January 26th at 6:30am, tune into CIUT-FM as we present the complete “SLEEP” by Max Richter as part of the “To Sleep or Not To Sleep” initiative: Thinking through the night with artists, writers, philosophers, historians, neuroscientists and other restless minds.

In partnership with the Cultural Service of the French Embassy in Canada, Hart House and CIUT-FM the Art Museum is one of the first Canadian institutions to take part in this all-night event happening simultaneously in more than 50 cities. Night of Ideas will bring together international artists, writers, philosophers, historians, neuroscientists and other restless minds to tackle such wide-ranging subjects as the neuroscience of sleep, the meaning of downtime, the health impact of sleeplessness, the cultural importance of dreaming, and the architecture and politics of sleep.

The audience will be able to engage directly in conversation with these thinkers as part an intensive series of keynote lectures, workshops, performances, screenings and readings.

The Music Gallery and CIUT-FM present
History Series: Creative Music on Campus Radio

This season the Music Gallery’s History Series continues with two linked events which explore the documentation of creative music in Toronto. Creative music, as we use it in our slogan “Toronto’s Centre For Creative Music”, has a historical basis in the mid-60s with Chicago’s Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. Their charter states that creative music encompasses “serious, original music” but is not limited to jazz-based expression. Throughout this series, and in our programming in general, we strive to explore every potential aspect of this inclusive term.

Our first edition of this series in 2018 is the History of Creative Music on Campus Radio. Non-mainstream music and radio art got a big boost from the emergence of FM radio at the end of the 60s. Combined with the advent of late night programming, radio opened up countless hours of experimental programming possibilities for stations large and small. Campus radio at CJRT, CKLN and the Scope (Ryerson), CIUT (U of Toronto) and CHRY (York) were especially important in fostering community and paying royalties to up and coming musicians creating jazz, new music and completely unclassifiable sounds.

This panel discussion is hosted at CIUT studios by Artistic Director David Dacks, himself a 25-year veteran of CIUT, and features panelists Ron Gaskin, Sarah Peebles, Nilan Perera, Claudia McKoy and Luca Capone. Expect a wide-ranging conversation about sounds, aesthetics, personalities and anecdotes from decades gone by right up to the present day. This session will be recorded for future broadcast on CIUT.
