Oct 4, 2019 – January 6, 2020 https://naisa.ca/festivals/soundplayseries/ NAISA's fall SOUNDplay Festival, established in 2002, is a meeting point for experimentation in sound art and new media, encouraging new avenues for exploration.

2) SOUNDplay Festival Exhibitions

https://naisa.ca/festivals/soundplayseries/installations/ ► Kinetic Transmissions by Gordon Monahan Continues to Jan 6, 2020, Thursday to Monday, 10am – 4pm, PWYC NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave., South River, ON Kinetic Transmissions, created in 2016, uses audio signals to create kinetic movements in motors. The audio vibrations are transmitted through the motors and into resonant objects such as drums, which amplify the audio recordings. At the same time that the audio recordings are transmitted and amplified into the drums, they also cause other motors to tremble and shake in kinetic gestures. These audio-induced movements, in turn, provide kinetic motions that result in percussion events, such as motors that have bells or sea shells attached to them, or wires that play wine glasses or drums as percussion objects. ► Off the Beat(en) Track video installation screening Continues to Jan 6, 2020, Thursday to Monday, 10am – 4pm, PWYC NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave., South River, ON NAISA completes its year long exploration of the theme "Off the Beat(en) Track" with a video installation screening of works exploring auditory and visual rhythms with works by Darsha Hewitt with Nelly-Eve Rajotte, Jaroslaw Kapuscinski, Myriam Boucher, Jeff Morris and an early film by Canadian animation pioneer Norman McLaren.

5) Springscapes

April 4 – May 31, 2020 NAISA will once again focus its spring exhibits on the exciting new sounds of spring in the north. Now called Springscapes, this series of exhibits, performances and workshops explores the dramatic changes that take place in the natural soundscape of the Almaguin Highlands from winter to spring. The series begins with the 'melting' phase of the outdoor ice/water sound sculpture by Michael Waterman and Jesse Stewart premiered during Deep Wireless and concludes with another project with the South River Public School, which is an installation created by Sandy McLennan using pinhole photography and soundscape recording. The series also includes the continuation of NAISA's annual soundscape recording workshop during the Dawn Chorus weekend (May 1-3). —————————————————————- New Adventures in Sound Art is a non-profit organization that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of sound art.
