NAISA will celebrate with another Sound Bash. For the month of March, NAISA's installation space will be filled with 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.

2) Trans-X Symposium Call for Papers deadline March 16, 2012
New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) is pleased to announce the Trans-X,
a symposium about Transmission Art May 25-27, 2012
We are now inviting proposals for papers
Rooted in the earliest experiments with radio, Transmission Art has continued to flourish with experiments with wireless communications technology over the past 100 years. The 21st Century is not excluded from this experimentation as artists have ventured into exploring a variety of mobile-based platforms and more lesser known forms of transmission such as VLF. The terrain of transmission art is dynamic and fluid, always open to redefinition.
The Trans-X symposium, part of the Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art, will focus on transmission art, with particular interest in paper contributions that summarize, examine or reframe traditions and histories of transmission art practices, technology, education and pedagogy. Additionally, we are very interested in paper presentations that go beyond the local contingent to give a sense of what new technologies of international transmission activity might sound like.
Proposals related to any aspect of transmission art practice are welcome. Submit a 500-1000 word abstract, and a biography of 250 words or less, to the symposium's Review Committee at: http://naisa.ca/transx-submit-piece.php
All symposium contributions will be webcast live, and text proceedings will be published on-line on the NAISA web-site.
