New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme FREEDOM for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art's 2012 programming in Toronto, Canada. Using the theme of FREEDOM for its 2012 programming, NAISA will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of John Cage, an artist that challenged established artistic conventions in many fields. He also helped to broaden the already evolving language of sonic expression to include the existence of sound within the realm of art.
Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme of FREEDOM. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works for live performance, gallery exhibit, screening, webcast or audio stream, radio broadcast, network or translocal performance, mobile experiences and any other emerging formats that include sound as a primary element. Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your audio by midnight on September 30, 2011. Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions.
