SONIC GEOGRAPHY: exploring Space & Sound
Categories: Transmission Art/Radio Art, Electroacoustic Music/Sound Art, Interactive Installation Art, Locative Media Art

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme SONIC GEOGRAPHY: Exploring Space & Sound – for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2013 programming in Toronto, Canada.

The NAISA Space is located in a 100 year old building originally constructed as a repair barns for the city’s streetcar trollies. The sound of these trollies over the past 100 years has become a signature of the Toronto soundscape. In recognizing this important local milestone NAISA is asking artists to consider sounds that speak of place and that help identify communities.

Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme of SONIC GEOGRAPHY: Exploring Space & Sound. 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 for performance, gallery exhibit, screening, webcast or audio stream, radio broadcast, network or translocal performance, mobile experiences and any other emerging formats that include sound as a primary element. Programming contexts include the long established festivals Deep Wireless and Sound Travels along with other events. Visit the other sections in this site to explore NAISA’s programming activity.

Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your audio by midnight on November 15, 2012. Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. All works programmed by NAISA will receive an artist fee with the exception of works broadcast on NAISA Radio.
