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 and produced by the National Film Board of Canada
October 4 to November 25, 2018, Thursday to Monday, 10 am to 4 pm

A large urban city is flooded. Its infrastructure has merged with the local fauna; mature trees grow through cracks in the sidewalks and vines cover south-facing walls. People commute via canoe and grow vegetables on skyscraper roofs. Urban life is thriving.

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.

This presentation of Biidaaban: First Light was made possible by the support of the National Film Board.

anyWare by Jane Tingley
January 17 to April 1, 2019, Thursday to Monday, 10 am to 4 pm
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Avenue, South River
Pay By Donation

anyWare is an Internet of Things distributed sculpture comprised of three identical objects that are individually connected to the Internet and physically mirror each other. The anyWare sculptures are art objects that telematically connect different locations in the world and enable distal physical communication. The objects simultaneously respond to people who interact directly with them, as well as allow them to interact with each other through the sculptures. Structuring these interactions are a number of games and puzzles for people to play/solve, either individually or collaboratively. The objects transform in the experience of exploration (either with one person or potentially with many people) and in so doing reveal different levels of interactivity and aesthetic experience.

NAISARadio Café

NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Avenue, South River

5) Art’s Birthday celebrations open Deep Wireless Festival
    January 17 - 19, 2019

    NAISA North Media Arts Centre
    106 Ottawa Avenue, South River, ON

Art’s Birthday is an international exchange-art event on or around January 17th to celebrate the birth of Art. The idea was proposed in 1963 by French artist Robert Filliou to celebrate the presence of art in our lives. It has since been celebrated on January 17 by artists and arts organizations around the world. Visit to read about past editions.

January 17
On January 17th, special guest artist Jane Tingley will launch her exhibition of anyWare, a networked media sculpture with a special performance version for Euroradio Satellite network that includes audience participation at NAISA and a remote performer at an Art's Birthday party somewhere else in the world.

January 19
Join us on Saturday January 19th from 10am - 4pm, for a chance for the entire family to experience and create Art. Kids of all ages can try out many fun and exciting art-making activities, including interacting with the anyWare sculpture, and yes, there will be cake to celebrate Art’s 1,000,056th birthday.

Jan 18 - 20
For those that wish to dive deeper into learning about interactive electronics, Jane Tingley will lead a workshop intensive on January 18 to 20 where participants will learn to build interactive touch board interfaces and use them to activate winter sound recordings made at Warbler's Roost with NAISA Artistic Director Darren Copeland.

New Adventures in Sound Art is a non-profit organization that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of sound art. NAISA is partially funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts and the SOCAN Foundation.
