July 18 - September 25, 2010, SOUND TRAVELS FESTIVAL of SOUND ART
New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) is pleased to present the 12th edition of the Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art, which opens July 18 and runs until September 25, 2010. As part of a summer-long celebration of sound art, NAISA presents indoor and outdoor performances, sound installations, an outdoor interactive sound sculpture, SOUNDwalks, a series of workshop intensives and the fourth annual Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium at various venues at the Artscape Wychwood Barns (601 Christie Street) as well as outdoors on Centre Island and around the Barns.
In a world that often focuses too much on the visual, Sound Travels brings about a refreshing change as it presents works by sound artists that extract compelling musicality and wordless dramas from everyday sounds often taken for granted. From this lush auditory experience, audiences author their own imaginary world in their mind’s eye – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.
