1) SOUNDplay Festival
     Continues to November 26, 2017
     South River and Toronto, ON

New Adventures in Sound Art’s SOUNDplay Festival continues to November 26, 2017. SOUNDplay is a meeting point for experimentation in sound art and new media, encouraging new avenues for exploration. SOUNDplay 2017 features an interactive installation by James Kirkpatrick, works by Myriam Boucher and Hyperboreal (Dermot Wilson and Jason Brock) and workshops and concert of works by visiting UK/Norway artist Natasha Barrett.

“As artists have access to a broader range of tools that allow them to incorporate multiple disciplines and multi-sensory experiences, the question becomes not which discipline these artists work within but rather how they integrate various elements from multiple disciplines into their works. With this year’s edition of SOUNDplay, the presentations feature artists integrating both visual and sound practices into a cohesive and personal artistic language.” – Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art.

Continues to Nov 26, Thurs, Sat, Sun 10 am - 4 pm, Friday 10 am - 7:30 pm, PWYC
NAISA North Media Arts Centre
106 Ottawa Avenue, South River, Ontario

This exhibition of work by graffiti, hip hop and multi-media artist James Kirkpatrick from London, Ontario features his interactive sound sculptures. Mila Petkovic in Metro wrote “Kirkpatrick’s bright and highly detailed work takes its inspiration from science fiction, cartoons and the secret worlds of video games.” Kirkpatrick's sound sculptures are created by circuit-bending, or re-purposing, consumer electronics toys as well as by transforming their visual appearance with his playful and colourful style. These sculptures invite group play and collaboration to create beats, melodies and scratchy textures out of discarded electronic toys.
