MULTI-PLATFORM INTERACTIVE MUSIC VIDEO EXPERIENCE
Toronto sounds good. It always has.
As a nexus of Canadian music, the city has been enriched by wave after wave of homegrown and international musicians. Its stages, streets and alleys resonate with the notorious jams, numbing heartaches, and lucky breaks that are the city's musical DNA.
City Sonic is a new, multi-platform music series that delivers these stories straight into the hands of today's music fans, wherever they are: online, on their mobile phones, or in front of the TV.
It's their backstage, all-access pass to 20 revealing short films featuring contemporary music stars such as Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene, Cancer Bats, Tyler Stewart of Barenaked Ladies, Sarah Slean, Fucked Up, Justin Rutledge, Danko Jones, Divine Brown, Geddy Lee of Rush! and lots more!
Each short film tells the story of one musician and their shared history with a legendary Toronto music venue. City Sonic creates a new level of engagement with the city through breakthrough location-based storytelling and a gaming component built around the new generation of mobile smartphones.
