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.
For the month of March, NAISA's installation space will be filled with 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. NAISA's Sound Bash Concert series includes performances on this evolving instrument / sound installation. Join us for four evening Saturday performances March 8, 15, 22, 29 and a chance to join in afterwards. Evening concert performance by artists Viv Corringham & James Bailey.
