In March, 2012 New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) turns 12! Back by popular demand, the NAISA Sound Bash returns. On March 12, 2001, New Adventures in Sound Art became a not-for-profit organization, expanding its programming that year from one festival (Sound Travels) to 3 and committing to providing year-round sound art programming for all ages.
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 12, we encourage you to join in the celebration as you discover the potential for music in everyday sounds. There is a musician and sound artist within us all. Let the NAISA Sound Bash open that creative door..- Darren Copeland, NAISA Artistic Director
For the month of March, NAISA's installation space will be filled with new selection of everyday 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. Open every Saturday in March, 10am - 2pm or by appointment with added times during the March Break Fun Fair.

Sound Bash Fun Fair during March Break!
This year, NAISA has developed special March Break family-friendly activities. Drop-in during our scheduled times March 9 - 17 (or email [email protected] for private bookings). Children big and small will enjoy the many fun fair activities which are designed to connect everyday activities with fascinating sounds including fishing for sounds, bucket toss, recycled bowling, toonie toss (use your admission fee), spin the wheel and other sound inspired activities. As well they can play, strike, pluck, or tap a collection of found objects that are amplified and modified to reveal unusual sounds that they didn't think were possible.
