1) TransX Transmission Art Symposium
Call for Papers & Performances
Deadline January 31, 2013

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) is pleased to announce the 2013
edition of the TransX Transmission Art Symposium
May 17 - 20, 2013

We are now inviting submissions for papers and performances:

Rooted in the earliest experiments with radio, Transmission Art has
continued to flourish into the 21st Century with experiments using
wireless communications technology over the past 100 years, including the
exploration of a variety of mobile-based platforms and lesser-known forms
of transmission, such as VLF. The terrain of transmission art is dynamic
and fluid, always open to redefinition.

The Trans-X Transmission Art Symposium, part of the Deep Wireless Festival
of Radio & Transmission Art, will focus on Transmission Art, with
particular interest in contributions that summarize, examine or reframe
traditions and histories of transmission art practices, technology,
education and pedagogy. Additionally, we are very interested in
presentations that go beyond the local contingent to give a sense of how
new technologies of international transmission activity might be
experienced. Proposed presentations and performances that combine the
themes of Transmission Art and "Sonic Geography" are also especially
welcome (see submission details at!

2) Toronto Artist Soirée with John Wynne
January 12, 2013 @ 8pm, The NAISA Space, 601 Christie #252, Toronto, $5

Join us for an evening concert and artist talk at the NAISA space with
featured artist John Wynne who will present and discuss his works.

Sound artist John Wynne has a PhD from Goldsmiths College, University of
London. His award-winning work, which is often research-led, is made for
museums, galleries and public spaces, as well as for radio: it ranges from
massive installations to delicate sculptural works and from architectural
sound drawings to flying radios. Long-term research projects have included
working with speakers of endangered languages in Africa and Canada and
with heart and lung transplant patients in the UK. For 3 years he had his
own programme called Upcountry on ResonanceFM in London, where he "invited
Tammy Wynette to have tea with Pierre Henry - in a thunderstorm" (Ed
Baxter). He is a Reader in Sound Arts at the University of the Arts
London, and a core member of the CRiSAP research centre.
