Sound Travels

Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art

In a world that often focuses too much on the visual, Sound Travels brings about a refreshing change as it presents works by sound artists that extract compelling musicality and wordless dramas from everyday sounds often taken for granted. From this lush auditory experience, audiences author their own imaginary world in their mind’s eye – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art

The annual Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art includes interactive installations, performances, Youth Sound Art Workshops, the Sound Travels Intensive and the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium.

Complex Interactions is an exhibit that features interactive installations that use movement by participants to create a complex series of responses. David Rokeby's Very Nervous System is an internationally regarded interactive artwork that creates a complex and resonant relationship between the movement of the participant and the sounds generated by the computer, while St. Pierre-Gauthier's P(n,r) = n!/(n-r)! provides a portable station for participants to remix their sound art improvisations into new compositions.
Turbulent Forms and Nova

Turbulent Forms and Nova are two exhibitions of new work by artist and composer Dan Tapper, exploring the universe through chaos and cosmology. The works exhibited are inspired and derived from physical data gathered by space organizations and physicists as well as using thought experiments, illustrative techniques and imagination to create parallels and appreciation of complex, abstract and theorized concepts. Turbulent Forms is funded by Arts Council England and the British Council.
