1) SOUNDplay Festival
     September 28 - November 25, 2018
     NAISA North Media Arts Centre
     106 Ottawa Avenue, South River, ON

Since 2002, New Adventures in Sound Art’s SOUNDplay Festival has been a meeting point for experimentation in sound art and new media, encouraging new avenues for exploration. This year the performances, screenings and interactive exhibits in the festival explore the world of sound in relation to game play, Virtual Reality and physical interaction and focuses on participation of the audience in electronic and digital genre-bending artworks. All of the presentations include opportunities for learning and dialogue for all ages about the ever-changing nature of art.

“As the gaming industry is transforming the nature of home entertainment, SOUNDplay 2018 examines the nuances of gaming and physical interactivity as a means of artistic sonic exploration. What new structures for organizing music, sound and narrative exist within these emerging media and how do they alter our articulation of space through sound? The works in SOUNDplay also respond to NAISA’s theme Sonic Reflection for its 2018 programming by exploring acoustic space in the physical and digital realms.” – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.

Biidaaban: First Light, a virtual reality film
by Lisa Jackson, Mathew Borrett, Jam3
produced by the National Film Board of Canada
October 4 to November 25, 2018, Thursday to Monday, 10 am to 4 pm

Rooted in the realm of Indigenous futurism, Biidaaban: First Light is an interactive virtual reality film that time-jumps 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. This version allows other visitors also to experience this VR film as the user interacts with it.
