Sound Travels

SoundTravelsLarge

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.

Synthecycletron was commissioned in 2006 by New Adventures in Sound Art and has been a Toronto Island favourite amongst Toronto cyclists and visitors ever since. It is an interactive installation where the public generates power by pedalling on stationary bicycles which in turn activate synthesizers and generate sounds connected to the pedalling movement.
