What Is: Futurism, The Future Resonates on May 13 2023 at the Music Gallery

What Is: Futurism

The Future Resonates

Concert , Multimedia , Performance in What Is: Futurism Series

Lean back, zone out and let the audio- visual experience wash over you.

Teaming up with Imbue Detroit and Montreal’s MUTEK, the Music Gallery dives into the depths of sonic futures. 

Our structure at 918 Bathurst was once home to the Buddhist community of Toronto. Its reverberant wooden A-frame contains layers of dreams and praises that make our home venue feel incredibly special. So what if, with more intention, we aim to embed futures into these beams?

Audio and visual artists create a 7 hour day dedicated to interpretations of the future. What does the future sound like? What pockets of hope do we want future generations to stumble upon? How can this resonance be used to share lessons?

Alongside this presentation, Acote & Fezz Stenon’s Fluid Index will run as an installation in the Gallery room, as a further space of congregation and discourse. 


918 Bathurst, is not currently wheelchair accessible due to stairs (two half-flights to enter the performance space, and one flight to access the washrooms). We will have ear plugs, sunglasses, and a ‘therapeutic room’ for those that need it. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to sanjeet@musicgallery.org


We strongly encourage masking at all times. For our full policy, click here


We expect all attendees and community members to respect one another, and to respect the work that was created for you to explore. We will not tolerate harm or harmful behaviour of any kind. View our policy here.
