Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art
NAISA is proud to announce the 22nd annual edition of the Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art at the NAISA North Media Arts Centre in South River.
“As arts presentation in Canada continues to undergo transformations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NAISA, has also been experiencing transformations into how it can continue presenting its programming. As a result, installations have shifted from indoors to outdoors, concerts and workshops are being hosted over web-conferencing platforms and the first online compilation album is being produced for Sound Travels after fourteen straight albums for the Deep Wireless festival.
The spirit of transformation was in fact in the minds of NAISA’s team prior to the pandemic as it is this year’s theme (chosen a year ago). And each artist in this year’s Sound Travels festival has taken a very personal approach to the theme, as each takes visitors to worlds that blend seamlessly between musical listening and imaginary planes of existence. NAISA staff wishes everyone good health and adventurous listening.” – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.
Featured this year are outdoor installations by Matthew Rogalsky and Bentley Jarvis, a series of online meetups, the culmination of which will be a Community Soundscape collection for World Listening Day facilitated by Tina Pearson, and the first edition of a Sound Travels compilation album for Soundcloud as well as two online concert events.
