In March, 2012 New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) turns 12! 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 12, 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 - 2pm or by appointment with added times during the March Break Fun Fair.

TransX Transmission Art Symposium Call for Papers & Performances


Deadline:
Thu Jan 31, 2013 11:45

Location:
Toronto, Canada

We are now inviting submissions for papers and performances:

Rooted in the earliest experiments with radio, Transmission Art has continued to flourish into the 21st Century with experiments using wireless communications technology over the past 100 years, including the exploration of a variety of mobile-based platforms and lesser-known forms of transmission, such as VLF. The terrain of transmission art is dynamic and fluid, always open to redefinition.

The Trans-X Transmission Art Symposium, part of the Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art, will focus on Transmission Art, with particular interest in contributions that summarize, examine or reframe traditions and histories of transmission art practices, technology, education and pedagogy. Additionally, we are very interested in presentations that go beyond the local contingent to give a sense of how new technologies of international transmission activity might be experienced. Proposed presentations and performances that combine the themes of Transmission Art and "Sonic Geography" are also especially welcome
