New Adventures in Sound Art is pleased to announce the 5th annual NAISA Sound Bash Series. On March 12, 2001, New Adventures in Sound Art became a not-for-profit organization, expanding its programming that year 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 14, 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 a 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 Saturdays and Sundays in March and daily during the March Break during the March Break Fun Fair from 10am - 3pm or by appointment.
