NAISA is 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 “Undo/Redo” are also especially welcome.

EVENT

Flash Orchestra by Eric Powell


Dates:
Sat Jan 18, 2014 00:00 - Mon Feb 17, 2014

Location:
Toronto, Canada

Admission by donation

Flash Orchestra is an interactive installation by Eric Powell. Listeners enter into a darkened room, the walls covered with black drapery. With flashlights as the only means of illumination, they begin to explore the space. As the flashlights pan across the walls, sounds emerge - as if the walls themselves could sing: sharing sounds from other places, revisiting memories of old conversations, and the collected sonic ephemera from seasons past.

Synthesthesia is an interactive installation that produces a sound composition based on the collage created by arranging black and white paper pieces in various ways. The resulting visual collages form visual musical scores which are analyzed by Synthesthesia, an open-source software, in order to generate sounds and explore different sound properties. To look at a previous presentation of Synthesthesia go to: http://vimeo.com/48440319/
