In March, 2012 New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) turns 13! Back by popular demand, the NAISA Sound Bash returns. On March 12, 2001, New Adventures in Sound Art became a not-for-profit organization, expanding its programming that year from one festival (Sound Travels) to 3 and committing to providing year-round sound art programming for all ages.
Since its inception in March 2001, New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) has provided a home for the sonic imagination in Toronto, a place where anyone can explore art through sound. As NAISA turns 13, we encourage you to join in the celebration as you discover the potential for music in everyday sounds. There is a musician and sound artist within us all. Let the NAISA Sound Bash open that creative door.- Darren Copeland, NAISA Artistic Director
For the month of March, NAISA's installation space will be filled with new selection of everyday objects especially selected for the interesting sounds they make when struck or played, offering you a chance to play with sound and manipulate it live. Open every Saturday in March, 10am - 3pm or by appointment with added times during the March Break Fun Fair. The 2014 edition of the NAISA Sound Bash installation will be designed by McMaster interns Ben Barrett-Forest and Mackenzie Ewing.
