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.

Warbler's Roost, South River, Ontario

On May 1 from midnight to midnight local time, the soundscape at Warbler’s Roost will be streamed live on NAISA Radio. The soundscape, free of urban hum, will be in the midst of the transition to Springtime. The calm silence of winter will have slipped into memory and the snow nearly gone.

We look forward to sharing the soundscape of Warbler’s Roost - through participating in Reveil 2016 - with listeners around the world. NAISA would like to thank it's team of recordists who live in the local area and are familiar with the characteristics of the local soundscape.

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Sound Response for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2017 programming.

Sound, people, animals and environments interact in interesting and complex ways. Languages are shaped by environments, sounds often distinguish the character of a community or habitat, and sound waves propagate differently when they respond to different surfaces and atmospheric conditions. For its 2017 programming, NAISA is interested in submissions that reflect the notion of a Sound Response and creative ways that this can be shared.
