About IAM

IAM – IdeasAboutMusic.ca, is a weekly blog and occasional podcast from Toronto musician and metatheorist Christopher Dawes.  It delves into the music of our lives: how it works and what it means.

IAM explores such concepts as music’s power and politics; its history and hermeneutics; its subversity and its sanctity.

Its metatheoretical framework seeks genre as diversion rather than determinant and the sacred as simulacrum … but always honouring creativity and expression; linking art with life and love.
