New Adventures in Sound Art is pleased to launch the 17th edition of the SOUNDplay Festival, September 28 to November 25, 2018. SOUNDplay is a meeting point for experimentation in sound art and new media, encouraging new avenues for exploration. SOUNDplay 2017 features an interactive installation by James Kirkpatrick, works Myriam Boucher and Hyperboreal (Dermot Wilson and Jason Brock) and workshops and concert of works by visiting UK/Norway artist Natasha Barrett.
“As artists have access to a broader range of tools that allow them to incorporate multiple disciplines and multi-sensory experiences, the question becomes not which discipline these artists work within but rather how they integrate various elements from multiple disciplines into their works. With this year’s edition of SOUNDplay, the presentations feature artists integrating both visual and sound practices into a cohesive and personal artistic language.” – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.

Rooted in the realm of Indigenous futurism, Biidaaban: First Light is an interactive VR time-jump into a highly realistic—and radically different—Toronto of tomorrow. As users explore this altered city now reclaimed by nature, they must think about their place in history and ultimately their role in the future. Details here.
