Back by popular demand, the NAISA Sound Bash returns but in a new location. 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, a place where anyone can explore art through sound. As NAISA turns 16, 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

From March 11 to April 23, NAISA’s exhibition 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 Saturday and Sundays March 11 - April 30, 11am - 4pm or by appointment with added times during the March Break Fun Fair. Special thanks to local artist Christine Charette for her visual/sound design.

Join us for the fourth edition of the March Break Fun Fair. Using the NAISA Sound Bash Installation and other recycled objects, NAISA has developed special March Break family-friendly activities. Drop-in during our scheduled times March 11 - 19 (or email naisa@naisa.ca for private bookings). Children big and small will enjoy the many fun fair activities which are designed to connect everyday activities with fascinating sounds including fishing for sounds, bucket toss, recycled bowling, toonie toss (use your admission fee), spin the wheel and other sound inspired activities. As well they can play, strike, pluck, or tap a collection of found objects that are amplified and modified to reveal unusual sounds that they didn’t think were possible.
