For lovers of sound art who can get their ears to Toronto, New Adventures in Sound Art has announced its schedule of performances, workshops and panels for the upcoming Radio Without Boudaries conference. This three day gathering (May 27, 28 and 29) will explore the many potentials, boundaries and artist perspectives of radio and transmission art.
Keynote speaker will be CBC’s Jonathan Goldstein (of Wiretap) speaking on alternative and unconventional storytelling techniques. There will also be performances by the amazing Big Shed Square Dance, an audio production crew from the US whose quirky and remarkable CV includes ‘the place + memory” project, ‘the poop + memory’ project, and ‘The Big Shed Audio Documentary Podcast”. And of course Toronto’s own Deep Wireless Ensemble will be on hand.
The conference will host workshops and panels on sound recycling, listening to low-level electromagnetic waves, wireless imagination and – my personal favourite – investigative journalism versus electro-acoustic art.
Registration before March 31 is $65 for a day or $110 for the whole conference.
See you there!
