New Adventures in Sound Art

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) is a non-profit organization, based in Toronto, that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of electroacoustic and experimental sound art. NAISA’s annual events include: the Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art in May, the Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art in August, NAISA’s participation in the international Art’s Birthday celebration in January, as well as the NAISA Sound Bash Series in March and the SOUNDplay series in November. The objectives of NAISA are to foster awareness and understanding locally, as well as nationally and internationally, in the cultural vitality of experimental sound art in its myriad forms of expression. This objective will be achieved through the exploration of new sound technologies in conjunction with the creation of cultural events and artifacts.

NAISA In Pictures is a selection of photographic prints, made using both analog and digital cameras, that document NAISA's concerts, performers, composers, and participants since 2000. Composition, texture, and colour are terms that are equivalent in music and images, and Stefan A. Rose has met the challenge of capturing the essence of events in time, with the split-second precision of photography. His images parallel the performances, inhabiting a world of light and motion, shadow and stillness. This spectrum of visible and near-visible, the apparent and suggested, points to environments imbued with metaphor, memory, and meaning.
