(Richmond andSpadina) which also operates as a retail store and a musicalmuseum, selling and displaying authentic instruments from all overthe globe, including ones from Peru, China, Australia and partof northern Canada. Like a gleaming gem from any of these faroff places, the intimate space radiates with breathtaking colours personal passion for aboriginal and contemporary world music. I hadthe opportunity to ask him a few questions about the venue.What made you decide to change Musideum from a retail space to aperformance space? “I thought that by offering Musideum up only asa retail store was not doing the concept of it justice. The initial conceptI had for Musideum three years ago when I opened it, includeddesigning a space that could be used as a musical performance spaceand could also serve as a museum of sorts exposing the public andthe world at large to music and musical instruments that have rarelybeen appreciated in person. Until Musideum, many of these instrumentscould only be seen in books or perhaps on the internet.”How has your background as a film composer influenced the designof the space? collaborative medium, one has to appreciate visual aesthetic, poetry,words, art and some less-tangible concepts.Today I view Musideum as a single space where all of my artisticendeavours can be shared with the public and be appreciatedeasily. Musideum has become a venue where performers of allkinds can intimately share their music with their audience with asmuch resonance and as little resistance as possible. Without thedistractions of food and drink for example!”What has been the response to the venue so far? “All of theaudiences have told me that they will continue to support the newMusideum venue and will come back. As a result we have over 2500hand-signed or opt-in addresses on our current mailing list. As forperformers, almost every performer we have asked has agreed totry doing at least one show here…Since last summer Musideum hashosted over 35 successful performances ranging from jazz to world,electronica, pop, experimental and more…unfortunately I’ve hadto limit the publicity of the shows as the venue’s capacity is only40 people.”What should our readers know if they are planning on attending aperformance at the Musideum? “Come early and please reserve aticket in advance (call 416-599-7323) if you want to guarantee a seat!And PLEASE check the website before you come down to makesure you have the latest information on the shows as our schedule isconstantly being added to. The link to our schedule can be found and it is updated on a daily basis.”December 1 – February 7, 2012 71ORI DAGAN
