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. Every Saturday evening there will be performances by Toronto sound artists to help raise funds for
NAISA’s educational and presentation opportunities for sound and media artists.
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. Download audio by donation starting March 1st: recordings of performances & found objects www.naisa.ca/eshops/esoundbash.php Celebrate with a bash that lasts! Thanks to Sound Bash sponsor Charles Street Video.
March 1st also marks the launch date of NAISA's installation space as a rentable space for sound and media artists. Go to www.naisa.ca/rent.html for more info.
March 12 performance by Bentley Jarvis
OCADU Assistant Professor Bentley Jarvis is a multi-media artist who creates works that integrate visual, sonic and performative aspects. He has worked with choreographers, theatre designers and visual artists for more than thirty years, investigating the relationships between how objects look and sound. Jarvis’s process begins with the building of highly resonant structures, for which he then composes electro-acoustic music, which is intended to be played on the structures. His installations often feature multiple monitors that portray the visual aspects of the music, creating slowly evolving digital paintings, with sound. Jarvis’s performance videos often feature one or more live musicians interacting with the video. Jarvis has been teaching electroacoustics at OCADU for the last 27 years.
