Hip Hop Dubsters Grand Analog Open This Year's Make Some Noise Series

hyperadmin | A City In Focus | Saturday, November 7th, 2009

When you think of the hushed, brightly-lit innards of your friendly neighborhood library, surely the last thing that comes to mind is the raucous sound of live club music, but that’s exactly what went down this past thursday as dubcentric hip hop crew Grand Analog kicked off this year’s Make Some Noise series at the Toronto Public Library’s College/Shaw branch. Beats, breaks, and bass licks were the order of the day as GA invited library goers inside their bottom heavy world with a humorous, hour-longs session, direct from the most appropriate of spaces — the kid’s section.

Now in it’s 4th year, the educational Make Some Noise expo is aimed at letting the general public in on the somewhat hidden wealth of in-depth musical knowledge and resources that are housed in public libraries across the city, while exposing audiences to a diverse host of move-making local musicians in a very intimate setting. To this second end, the mini-festival has teamed up with the Steve Jordan, founder of Canada’s esteemed Polaris prize, in an effort to help showcase a collection of artists considered to be on the leading edge of what this great nation has to offer, with this year’s list featuring Grand Analog, Timbre Timbre, Bruce Peninsula, Katie Stelmanis, and Jordan himself, who will be hosting a workshop offering sage advice on the ins and outs of breaking into the Canadian music scene. Other workshops include an insightful, GA-led discussion on the art of DJing to be held this coming tuesday (Nov 10, again at the College/Shaw library), as well as look inside the world of music documentation with local documentarian Colin Medley, this time at the Kennedy/Eglinton branch.

Grand Analog @ Make Some Noise

Make Some Noise runs until December 1, with workshops happening every Tuesday. Check torontopubliclibrary.ca/noise for more a comprehensive list of performers, locations, show times, and other related news, and let’s all try to take advantage of this perfect opportunity to get reacquainted with our many ┬álocal book learin’ emporiums.
