Bike Rage

By Unsettled Scores / On

Ever find yourself caught in gridlock, or having to weave your way through downtown traffic? Are you frustrated when you see a motorist texting in their lap, or a cyclist blowing through a red?

Bike Rage is a musical interpretation of Toronto’s unique and vibrant commuting culture. The piece follows a bike’s journey beginning at Church & Wellesley (The Village), past Jarvis and the former bike lanes (Stop Light/Elegy), through Allen Gardens (The Conservatory), down to Queen and Sherbourne (Gear Shift), and ending at Union Station (Door Prize).

Bike Rage was the first place winner (by audience vote) of Baroque Idol 2013.
