In March 2011 New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) turns 10! To celebrate we
invite you to a bash like no other ... literally.
For the month of March, NAISA's installation space will be filled with
everyday man-made objects especially selected for the interesting sounds
they make when struck or played, offering you a chance to play with sound
and manipulate it live.
We'll even record it for prosperity and give you a copy!
All to help support NAISA fund its educational and presentation
opportunities for sound and media artists.
"Since its inception in March 2001, New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) has
provided a home for the sonic imagination in Toronto, a place where anyone
can explore art through sound. As NAISA turns 10, we encourage you to join
in the celebration both on-line and in person to help create a Bash like no
other in which you invent and explore sound following the lead of your
imagination." - Darren Copeland, NAISA Artistic Director
For those not able to attend in person, you can download-by-donation the
many audio recordings of the found objects and performances on them by other
supporters of NAISA, beginning March 1st. Celebrate with a bash that lasts!
Thanks to Sound Bash sponsor Charles Street Video.
