FOR OPENERS | DAVID PERLMANPRICELESS!There are some things in the world thatmoney just can’t buy.Such as giving 15 or so minutes of yourtime to freely share information aboutyourself with us, without cash or prizes ormerchandise as a reward.And that, dear reader, is what we arehoping you will do, by completing theREADER SURVEY on pages 35 to 38 of thisissue and mailing it back to us.The better we know you, our readers, inaggregate, the better we we can chart acourse to serve you in the years to come.And remember, it’s not only the specificanswers you give or the comments youmake on the survey that will help us. It’sthe very fact of how many of you chooseto respond that will tell the story of thepriceless relationship we believe we havewith our readers.So please, complete the survey and mailit in (or complete and submit it online ifyou prefer).We’re counting on you to count yourself in.Sometimes it helps to make music …And Sometimes It HelpsTo Make Noise!And sometimes a little bit of the latter helps to keep the place of the former front and centrein circumstances where society’s attention has every excuse to wander.There’s a great little example of this noise/music mutual aid society in “Seeing Orange,” oureducation watch (page 57), where concerned and concerted muttering helped keep music alivein the region’s largest public school board for another year.There’s also probably a complex variation on the theme that could be braided out, by learnedlycontrasting the issue’s three strikingly different “takes” on new music: Ben Stein’s “ChoralScene”(page 26), Wendalyn Bartley’s “In With The New” (page 31) and Austin Clarkson’s reflectionson the tightrope between music and noise walked by some of the past century’s seminalcomposers (page 12).More straightforward, as the community we serve teeters on the edge of another new seasonof music making, is the simple observation that they (our region’s music presenters) are in thebusiness of making music, and we are in the business of making a whole bunch of cheerfulnoise about their music, so that you, dear readers, have one fewer reason for your attentionsto wander from the front-and-centre place that the conspicuous bravery of making live musicwarrants in a civilized society. They’ll do their bit, we’ll do ours, and you, we have no doubt,will continue to do yours.Mind you, this isn’t the easiest month in Toronto for making noise in the arts media aboutanything other than film, as TIFF once more takes the town by the scruff of its cultural neck.Happily, our Paul Ennis, with one foot planted squarely in his love of film and the other inmusical delight, has found a way for conflicted music lovers to rationalize an annual Septembermovie binge (“Music Lover’s TIFF,” page 10).So, let the woofing and tweeting begin! And we’ll see you on the other side.—publisher@thewholenote.comThe WholeNote Volume 19 No 1 | SEPTEMBER 1 – OCTOBER 7, 2013Centre for Social Innovation720 Bathurst St., Suite 503, Toronto ON M5S 2R4phone 416-323-2232 | Fax 416-603-4791Publisher/Editor In Chief | David Perlmanpublisher@thewholenote.comChairman of the Board | Allan Pulkerdirectors@thewholenote.comEDITORIALListings Editor | Sharna Searlelistings@thewholenote.comManaging Editor | Paul Enniseditorial@thewholenote.comRecordings Editor | David Oldsdiscoveries@thewholenote.comSocial Media Editor | Sara Constanteditorial@thewholenote.comClub Listings Editor | Ori Daganjazz@thewholenote.comSALES, MARKETING & MEMBERSHIPConcerts & Events/Membership | Karen Agesmembers@thewholenote.comRetail Sales/Marketing | Garry Pagemarketing@thewholenote.comDirectories | Adam Weinmanneducation@thewholenote.comAdvertising/Production Support/OperationsJack Buell | adart@thewholenote.comClassified Ads | classad@thewholenote.comWebsite/Systems | Bryson Winchestersystems@thewholenote.comCirculation/Subscriptions | Chris Malcolmcirculation@thewholenote.comSubscriptions per year + HST (9 issues)Thanks to this month’s contributorsBeat ColumnistsHans de Groot, Jack MacQuarrie, Benjamin Stein,Sharna Searle, David Olds, Dave Podgorski,Ori Dagan, Wendalyn Bartley, Jim Galloway,mJ buell, Christopher Hoile, Andrew TimarFeaturesLarry Beckwith, Paul Ennis, David PerlmanCD ReviewersStuart Broomer, Max Christie, Hans de Groot,Ori Dagan, Daniel Foley, Jim Galloway,Janos Gardonyi, Richard Haskell, Tiina Kiik,Pamela Margles, Christina Petrowska Quilico,Cathy Riches, Terry Robbins, Michael Schwartz,Bruce Surtees, Ken Waxman, Dianne WellsProofreadingSharna SearleListingsSharna Searle, Ori Dagan,Adam Weinmann, Tilly Kooyman,JennieLea McLeish, Ruth AtwoodCirculation TeamAbram Bergen, Beth Bartley, Bob Jerome,Dagmar Sullivan, Dave Taylor, Gero Hajek,Jack Buell, Jack Suttaby, Jeff Hogben,Joan Andrews, John Dodington, Lorna Nevison,Luca Perlman, Mark Clifford, Melanie Allen,Micah Herzog, Niamh Malcolm, Patrick Slimmon,Paul Ennis, Randy Weir, Rebecca Carpenter,Robert Faulkner, Sharon Clark, The Giang Nguyen,Tom Sepp, Vicki Stainton, Wende BartleyLayout & DesignUno RamatThe Ontario Arts Council is an agency of the Government of OntarioUpcoming Dates & DeadlinesFree Event Listings Deadline6pm Sunday September 8Display Ad Reservations Deadline6pm Monday September 16Classifieds Deadline6pm Tuesday September 24Advertising Materials Due6pm Wednesday September 18Publication DateMonday September 30Next issue, Volume 19 No 1 coversOctober, 2013WholeNote Media Inc. accepts no responsibility orliability for claims made for any product or servicereported on or advertised in this issue.Printed in CanadaCouto Printing & Publishing ServicesCirculation StatementSeptember 2013: 30,000 printed & distributedCanadian Publication Product Sales Agreement1263846ISSN 14888-8785 WHOLENOTEPublications Mail Agreement #40026682Return undeliverable Canadian addresses to:WholeNote Media Inc.Centre for Social Innovation503–720 Bathurst StreetToronto ON M5S 2R4Copyright © 2013 WholeNote Media Incthewholenote.com6 | September 1 – October 7, 2013
