New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) is proud to present the 20th anniversary edition of its Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art which opens June 3rd and runs until September 3, 2018, this time exclusively at the NAISA North Media Arts Centre in South River, Ontario. The festival is adopting a new format to celebrate 20 years of sound adventures by presenting ten consecutive Saturday night performances of sound art, Sunday afternoon Arts Meetups, sound art summer camps for children and youth and a summer-long exhibition of kinetic sound sculptures.

"Sound Travels brings together artists from many disciplines to explore the possibilities of sound as potential material for shaping and molding experiences, adding a transformative element that deepens and sharpens our attention to the world around us. The 2018 edition of Sound Travels includes works that have as their theme ‘Sonic Reflections,’ providing a framework from within which artists can draw.” – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.
