Betreff: [cec-c] NAISA 2018 Call for Submissions
NAISA is pleased to launch its 2018 Call For Submissions Off the Beat(en) Track
Deadline June 4, 2018
Categories: Transmission Art/Radio Art, Electroacoustic Music/Sound Art, Interactive Installation Art, and Other
New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Off the Beat(en) Track for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2019 programming.
A year ago, NAISA staff and its board of directors decided to move the organization from Toronto to the Village of South River, ON – very much ‚Off the Beaten Track.‘ Sound and media art centers and dissemination points are typically in urban centers. However, given the access and availability via digital technology, a dissemination point could be anywhere where there is internet access. NAISA’s early programming explored the connections between natural acoustic environments and media arts. NAISA’s move to the Near North and its proximity to Algonquin Park, brings it closer to its origins and provides NAISA the opportunity to present works that intersect between the natural and digital realms. NAISA’s facility NAISA North Media Arts Centre, now a year old, functions as a hub for artists in the region to network with each other and experience NAISA’s programming, including Arts Meetups, Artist Residencies, Interactive Exhibitions and Performances, all under one roof.
For its 2019 programming, NAISA is interested in submissions that address the ideas related to the theme Off The Beat(en) Track and creative ways that this can be shared. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works on the theme for performance, interactive installation exhibit, audio-visual screening, radio or internet broadcast, telematics, VR/gaming, mobile experiences and any other emerging or alternative formats that include sound as a primary element. Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your audio by midnight on June 4, 2018. Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. All works chosen for presentation will receive an artist fee. Only those artists being considered for presentation will be contacted.
