1) NAISA is please to launch Trans-X, a Symposium about Transmission Art
May 25-27, 2012
$70/$40 student rate (price includes keynote speakers, paper sessions, workshops, installations, & performances)
To register go to http://www.naisa.ca/eshops/naisareg.html
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 to name but a few recent examples. The terrain of transmission art is dynamic and fluid, always open to redefinition. At the heart of the Trans-X Symposium will be a keynote lecture by Galen Joseph-Hunter (New York, USA), author of Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves and Executive Director of free103point9. It will also include workshops, panel discussions, paper presentations and performances during the final weekend of the annual Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art which annually explores emerging trends alongside established traditions in radio and transmission art throughout the month of May.

3) Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium 2012 Call for Papers deadline April 23, 2012
New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) and the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) is pleased to announce the 2012 edition of Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium (TES) August 15 - 18, 2012
We are now inviting proposals for papers, compositions and performances (deadline: 23 April 2012)
The Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium (TES) has become a consistently creative and cohesive point of contact between diverse electroacoustic (EA) communities and the Toronto scene.
The 2012 symposium is the sixth annual iteration of this important opportunity for exchange between diverse EA communities. In recent years, a number of themes have emerged, among them laptop orchestras and electronic ensembles, exchanges between popular and "unpopular" traditions, "Sound plus Image", and telematic performances. Proposed presentations and performances/screenings related to the theme "Near and Far — Inner and Outer Sound Places" are especially welcome (see submission details below)!
The symposium will take place in Toronto at New Adventures in Sound Art's facilities at the Artscape Wychwood Barns, from 15–18 August 2012.
As in preceding years, the symposium leads directly into the main concert weekend of the annual Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art. The 2012 edition of Sound Travels will explore emerging trends alongside established traditions in electroacoustic music and will be presented on NAISA's real-time spatialization system. A highlight of the symposium will be a keynote lecture by Trevor Wishart, Sound Travels' featured artist.
All symposium contributions will be webcast live, and text proceedings will be published in a forthcoming issue of the CEC's online journal, eContact! Please see the web-site for specific guidelines on paper, composition and performance submissions at http://naisa.ca/opportunities.html#TES2012.
We look forward to seeing you, your colleagues, collaborators and students in Toronto in August!
