Dans un vaste dossier publié cet été, le Billboard évoque « un nouvel âge d’or ». Aux États-Unis, mais aussi ici, des artistes se hissent au sommet des palmarès radio et streaming grâce à des clips devenus viraux – faisant de ces derniers un formidable outil de découvrabilité. Bien qu’il ait toujours sa place à la télévision, comme en font foi les chaînes offertes par Stingray, le vidéoclip est aujourd’hui multiplateforme, rayonnant avant tout sur YouTube, et tout particulièrement auprès de certains publics, notamment les amateurs de rap et de musique pop. Alors, à quoi ressemble le vidéoclip nouveau ? La renaissance a-t-elle laissé place à de nouvelles façons de mettre la musique en images et de l’acheminer aux fans ?

The TSYO has a close affiliation with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra: TSO musicians serve as coaches through the season, TSO guest artists lead masterclasses for TSYO members, and the TSYO performs annually with the TSO in a side-by-side concert at Roy Thomson Hall.</span></span></span></p> <h2 class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><strong>TSYO Stingray Rising Stars </strong> </span></span></span></h2> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>The Stingray Rising Stars winner was announced on-stage by Matthew Loden, TSO CEO, and Ariane Charbonneau, Sponsorships and Partnerships Manager at Stingray. The talented 16-year-old Duncan MacDougall won the 1000$ prize to contribute towards advancing his career. Candidates for the award were judged on demonstrated leadership within the orchestra, artistic excellence, overall improvement and how they would use the prize money and exposure to further their musical career. Applications were judged by the TSYO faculty, made up of the TSYO Manager, TSYO Conductor and members of the TSO who act as teachers and mentors.</span></span></span></p> <h2 class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><strong>About the winner: Duncan MacDougall</strong></span></span></span></h2> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>Duncan has performed in masterclasses for Rachel Barton Pine, Ilya Kaler, Joel Krosnick, and Jonathan Crow. He is a Grade 11 student at Uxbridge Secondary School.</span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>We sat down with Duncan to tell us more about his win:</span></span></span></p> <div class="row-wrapper wysiwyg"> <div class="row row-narrow"> <div class="col"> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">What is your earliest artistic memory?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">When I was three years old, I would hold a ukulele to my chin and drag a drumstick across its strings, pretending that it was a violin and bow. My brother would loudly strum along on his mini guitar. </span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">Where/When did you decide you wished to become an artist professionally?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">It’s been my dream since I started violin lessons at the age of four to become a professional violinist. In 2014, I watched a Taylor Academy/Glenn Gould School masterclass led by Peter Oundjian. I was amazed by how good some of the students were, and they were only about five years older than me. That was when I really started working hard and when I dedicated myself 100% to music.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">Who and what are your main influences?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">Two of my biggest influences are my teachers, Kelly Parkins-Lindstrom and Jonathan Crow. They are the ones who have gotten me to this point in my musical journey; they influence my musical choices, they help me to improve my technique and my practice habits, and I’m inspired after ever lesson.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">I am also influenced by Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing. I love the joy and character in his playing, and the fact that he takes risks to let the music speak. I also enjoy the playing of James Ehnes and Vilde Frang. </span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">How did you come to be part of the TSYO?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">I knew many people in the TSYO before I joined, and they all seemed to enjoy it very much. I joined the TSYO in the 2017-18 season for many reasons. Being a part of this orchestra gave me valuable orchestral audition experience, I’ve explored amazing repertoire, and I’ve made many musical friends.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">What do you plan to do with the prize money?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>I plan to use it towards making professional recordings for university auditions, and also to help pay for tuition for universities and summer programs in the future. I am very grateful to Stingray and to the TSYO for this award.</span></span></span></p> </div> </div> </div> <p class="text-align-justify"><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA"><span><span>For more information regarding the Stingray Rising Stars program, click </span></span></span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA"><span><span><a href="https://music.stingray.com/rising-star?utm_source=stingray-blog&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">here</a></span></span></span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA"><span><span>.</span></span></span><br />  </p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

My folks gave me an Ernie Puppet at a very young age. It was always with me - I’d make it talk to everyone in a variety of voices.  More artistic memories - painting with my mom and playing with all my dad's cameras. I'd snap the shutter for hours, even if the camera wasn't holding any film. I remember looking for neat ideas through the lens and for any composition that made me laugh. I also used to sit with a tape deck, playing random tunes for hours, speaking into a tube of toothpaste pretending I was a professional DJ. </span></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><strong>Where/When did you become an artist professionally?</strong><br /> When I was 21 (I’m 45 now), I started as a morning kids host on YTV. I was that human in between the cartoons, talking to the kids at home and connecting with them emotionally and creatively. From there, everything took off, and I’ve been working in kids’ TV ever since. Since that time, I’ve had super fun runs making all kinds of on-air programs at NBC, CBC, TVO, PBS, FOX - really wherever there’s fun work, I’ll travel. Right now, I’m super focused on being my own boss.</span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><strong>Who and what are your main influences?</strong><br /> At the moment my main influence is being in nature. Big nature. Forests, mostly. I currently live in the city, so i’m really blown away at what each visit brings me.</span></span> <span><span>A bunch of chill, low-frequency time does wonders for me creatively. It really helps me dig deep, to see where I’m at, to reflect and focus.  For me it supports authenticity. In terms of human influences: my favorite puppeteer is Frank Oz - I could watch his puppetry for a billion flamillion hours on end.  At different ages I believe I’ve had a variety of neato human influences - looking back, they’ve mostly been musicians. My favorites to date are still Stevie Wonder &amp; Joni Mitchell. They speak the words and feel all the feelings. </span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><strong>How did you come to do the music video for Bahamas?</strong><br /> I’ve known Afie for about 5 years now. The more we’d hang out with each other, we'd discover that our sense of humor was super similar. The vibe with Afie is super easy and relaxed. I just love him as a musician and as a human. He’s seen/known about my past work, so he approached me about the idea of creating a puppet music video for him and I was so super jazzed to make it happen. The process of working with Afie was dreamy. So easy. He just trusted me and let me do whatever I wanted. He’s not precious - and as an artist who loves to see how far I can go, that’s a great space to work in.</span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><strong><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">The video and song deal with issues of depression, what is your best advice for those coping with these life issues?</span></strong><br /> So many people deal with depression and don’t talk about it. They feel they can’t because there isn’t space for it - that it’s wrong to feel that way. There’s so much shame in society in and around the experience. Being able to talk about your depression - finding as many spaces of support as you feel comfortable to (therapy, friends, nature, etc.) to enable a place of healing to me, is very helpful. The support keeps energy moving and creates a healthy space to be seen and heard. For me, making stuff really helps. Creating.  We're all fighting our own silent battles. I see you. You got this. xo</span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><strong>What do you plan to do with the prize money?</strong><br /> I’m going to buy a touch more camera gear so I can create some new things to watch. I have my eye on some new lenses - and maybe a larger travel bag so I don’t have to carry 18 thousand napsacks everywhere I go. I’ll also probably also buy some flowers, ukuleles and dinner for folks I know who are dealing with depression.</span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><strong>If you had to live inside a music video for the rest of your life, which would it be and why?</strong><br /> There are just so many music videos I love, so that’s a tough question! Wait - does a live performance count? There's a video that changed my life when I was 11 years old that is super meaningful to me. I was sitting in my folks’ living room, watching the 1983 Grammy Awards. Annie Lennox surprised North America- instead of performing as herself, she appeared singing as her alter ego, Earl, singing “<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pISsAndOLmA " target="_blank">Sweet Dreams</a>”. She wore a handsome suit, sideburns and an Elvis-inspired haircut. She had a special flavour of swagger on stage that was so charming and bold, gender-wise. She was pushing boundaries in the mainstream, hard. As a little trans kid, I was watching in SHOCK - I was intensely connected to the performance in a way I could not then, at 11, describe. Her gender bend spoke volumes to me - it was the first time I had seen something of that nature - it felt like I was intimately experiencing watching my own feelings being reflected back to me.  It made me feel not as alone. I can even remember what i was wearing. Oh. And I was eating jiffy pop.</span></span></p> </div> </div> </div> <ul></ul><div class="row-wrapper wysiwyg"> <div class="row row-narrow"> <div class="col"> </div> </div> </div> <div class="video-embed-field-responsive-video"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/feT1GQozvec?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0"></iframe> </div> <h3> </h3> <h3><span><span><span>Follow Ali’s work!</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Instagram - @alieisner @alieisnerphotography</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Twitter - @alieisner</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Personal Websites: <span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><a href="http://www.alieisner.com">www.alieisner.com</a></span></span>, <span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><a href="http://www.alieisnerphotography.com">www.alieisnerphotography.com</a></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.
