The Power of Music

The Power of Music
Profile: Peter Mutch

by Jane Ledwell

Sometimes I introduce myself and say what I do and I can see a person step back,” laughs music therapist Peter Mutch. Bright, eager eyes and smile belie his calm and easygoing body language. “It’s like they’re thinking, ‘I don’t need your voodoo stuff!’” But even for voodoo, it takes the right rhythm and relationship to make magic happen.

As we speak, Peter’s

Cuban Cocktail

Cuban Cocktail
Profile: Eduardo Mendoza

by Jane Ledwell

Eduardo Mendoza has the recipe to warm up an Island winter: Cuban rhythms stirred up with his new band, The Count and the Cuban Cocktail. “In Cuban music, there are many different kinds of music, but the rhythm is the same,” he says.

Eduardo knows Latin rhythm: before marrying a Canadian and moving to Canada, he performed for sixteen years in Cuba as a

Audience Appreciation

Audience Appreciation
Profile: Mary Gallant

by Jane Ledwell

Ever had the feeling you’ve been overheard enjoying an event at the Harbourfront Jubilee Theatre in Summerside? Mary Gallant is the quiet presence who lingers over arriving and departing theatre audiences and monitors moods as they mill about at intermission.

Hello from St. John’s

News from Sound Symposium in Newfoundland

by Teresa Doyle

Hello from Sound Symposium, in St. John’ Newfoundland. This is hands down the best festival I have ever attended. I have been to a ton of folk festivals but this is so much better. There is a great mix of genres…some folk, cutting edge classical, jazz…dancers, filmakers, art installations…and the town itself that is a “piece of work.” The

The Toronto International Film Festival took place September 8­17, 2005 at various venues across Toronto. It was a chance to take in some of the 335 films from 52 countries, wait in line-ups longer than those in the airport at Christmas and to

Hot Stuff

NXNE Music and Film Festival

by Lindsay Kyte

North by Northeast Music and Film Festival 2005, held in venues across Toronto June 7­12, began with self-important “volun-sneers” begrudgingly handing out media kits in bags that smelled like a new plastic pencil case from Bi-Way. Luckily, their “I’m in a purple shirt and who are you?” attitudes were no indication of what was to be a joyous, laidback

The Clash Band

The Clash Band

You might agree that a summer vacation would not be complete without the annual trip to downtown Charlottetown to witness PEI’s largest parade, The Gold Cup Parade. You might also argue that the most anticipated entry is Charlottetown’s Community Clash Band.

The notion of a community marching band was the brainchild of two musicians, Rowan FitzGerald and Frank McKearney. Their goal in the summer

More Than Mere Music

More Than Mere Music
A first-hand report from Canada Music Week 2005 in Toronto

by Lindsay Kyte

Everyone at Canada Music Week 2005 (CMW) had the same shaggy ’70s style hairdo. The difference was the execs paid Sting’s hairdresser big bucks for it, and the musicians got it by choosing electricity over Magic Cuts.

CMW took place March 2 to 5 in venues all over Toronto. It involved celebrity talks (Mathew Knowles—father
