Springscapes

NAISA is proud to launch a new series called Springscpaes which highlights the dramatic changes that take place in the natural soundscape of the Almaguin Highlands from winter to spring. The inaugural edition of 2020 features an International broadcast stream of dawn soundscapes from around the world as well as online meetups and a virtual concert performance.

The transformation of the natural soundscape from winter to spring is a distinguished feature of living in the Almaguin Highlands. NAISA’s new Springscapes series is inspired by this dramatic shift and provides artists with a context within which to engage in the creation of art works that not only focus on natural sounds but expresses this transformation in insightful ways.” – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.
