1) 2018 Call For Submissions OFF THE BEAT(EN) TRACK
Deadline: June 4, 2018

Categories: Transmission Art/Radio Art, Electroacoustic Music/Sound Art, Interactive Installation Art, and Other
Go to https://naisa.ca/opportunities/calls-for-submissions/naisa-general-call-for-submissions/ for full information and the on-line application.

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Off The Beat(en) Track for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2019 programming.

A year ago, NAISA staff and its board of directors decided to move the organization from Toronto to the Village of South River, ON - very much Off the Beaten Track. For its 2019 programming, NAISA is interested in submissions that address the ideas related to the theme Off The Beat(en) Track and creative ways that this can be shared.

Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme Off The Beat(en) Track. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works on the theme for performance, interactive installation exhibit, audio-visual screening, radio or internet broadcast, telematics, VR/gaming, mobile experiences and any other emerging or alternative formats that include sound as a primary element. Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your audio by midnight on June 4, 2018. Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. All works chosen for presentation will receive an artist fee. Only those artists being considered for presentation will be contacted.

“For this special 20th anniversary edition, we will be including works that focus on the theme ‘Sonic Reflections,’ bringing together artists from many disciplines to reflect as well as explore the possibilities of sound as potential material for shaping and molding experiences, adding a transformative element that deepens and sharpens our attention to the world around us.” - Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art
