Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium
We also invite you to check out the activities at this year’s edition of TIES (9–12 August 2017), with Keynote Speaker Chantal Dumas. TIES is co-presented by NAISA and the CEC in collaboration with the CMC. Four days of paper sessions, lecture-recitals, installations and concerts will be presented at the Ernest Balmer Studio and the Michael J. Baker Studio (both in the Distillery District), as well as at the Canadian Music Centre (CMC). Click here to register (price includes admission to all concerts).
The Case Goods building is located along the south side of the Distillery District. There are entrances on the north, south and west sides of the building. The west entrance is the closest to the studios; both the north and south entrances are wheelchair-accessible. The Michael J. Baker Studio is on the third floor (#314).
By Streetcar with a Bipedal Option
From the King or St. Andrew subway stations (both on Line 1, Yonge-University) take either the 504 King or 514 King Streetcar eastbound. Exit at Trinity Street and walk southeast on Trinity until you cross Mill Street.
The 514 Streetcar labelled Cherry Street runs less frequently but terminates more conveniently at the Distillery Loop on the east side of the District.
By Bus And a Couple of Feet
From the Castle Frank Station (Line 2, Bloor-Danforth) take the 65 Parliament bus southbound and exit at King and Parliament, then walk south to the western Mill Street entrance to the Distillery District.
