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.

"The experience of radio is no longer limited to the radio dial. The notion of transmission has become a platform for creative possibilities within which artists can explore new relationships between transmission and reception, artist and audience. This year’s Deep Wireless artists have moved beyond the confines of the radio dial to create works that question and document the nature of transmission while also addressing themes of communication and connection from a social point of view.”
— Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.
