Veronica Simmonds - Now

Deep Wireless 10 online album is published by New Adventures in Sound Art. Now News undoes and redoes the CBC hourly news as an audio collage. Four segments of CBC radio newscasts are reconstructed using only the words uttered that relate to time. I was inspired by the theme UNDO/REDO to undo the CBC hourly news and redo it as a comment on the media\'s relationship to time. I undid the linear content of the news and cut it into an audio collage, retaining only those words relating to time. Veronica Simmonds is a radio producer, writer, and media artist based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her work has aired on CKDU, CBC and various NPR stations. She is currently coordinating a story-telling project with Halifax Public Libraries called StackStories. And is a Media Art Scholar at the Centre for Art Tapes.

Cross Waves 4 -

"Cross Waves Series #4: DISTANT TRANSMISSION: Story and Sound from the North" Distant Transmission is an eclectic program of sound, stories and radio transmissions from northern Canada. Rather than exploring one particular theme, I’ve selected pieces that seem to articulate a sense of nordicity. "Nordicity is a wide concept developed in Canada from the 1960s that refers to the perceived, real or even imagined condition of high-latitude regions. It deals with a large variety of issues taken from both the natural and the human world that may lead to the combined understanding of facts, ideas and interventions of these northern lands. " Cross Waves is a Canadian Sound Art series that includes performances and internet radio programs curated by eight media artists representing various regional and cultural perspectives in Canada: Chantal Dumas, Steve Bates, Jason Ryle, Peter Courtemanche, Janna Graham, Christof Migone, Anna Friz and Eleanor King. The programs in the Series were made between July 2014 and December 2015. The content is contextualized by the curators through commentaries and essays that provide a comprehensive overview of sound art throughout Canada since the 1980's.

Sebastien Lavoie - Basketball Glitch

Deep Wireless 11 Online Album was produced by New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) for the 2015 edition of the annual Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art. The contents of the album were curated by NAISA from an international call for submissions on the theme HEAR now HERE. Also check out Deep Wireless 9 and 10 on Soundcloud. Basketball is one of the most played sports on the planet today. Its practice consists in throwing, dribbling and passing the ball, which produces lots of recognizable sounds. These sonorities are very rich and fertile in order to generate a “cinema for the ear”. The sound recordings, done on the Basketball court, have been manipulated and denaturalized through excessive digital transformations, thus creating some glitches on the original sounds. In 2014, Sebastien has started his PhD research and he is currently working on the hybridization of electroacoustic and electronic dance music with his research director Monty Adkins at the University of Huddersfield, in the UK. Sebastien is a 2014 winner in the CEC’s annual JTTP project. To listen: https://soundcloud.com/sebastienlavoie1

Karin Senff -

Deep Wireless 9 online album is published by New Adventures in Sound Art. Composed from the sounds generated by an X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer, "XRF" creates a conceptual model of the sub-atomic interactions that take place during sample analysis, where the action of an electron splitting from its atom can be read as a vital fracture of the most fundamental bonds of life. Karin Senff graduated from the University of Technology Sydney with a Bachelor of Sound and Music Design and is a core member of Sydney media-arts collective Triangulate. With a keen interest in soundscape ecology, bioacoustics and spatial audio practices, her work focuses on multi-channel electro-acoustic composition and interactive design. http://triangulate-collective.com/

Tonic Train & Peter Flemming - Deep Wireless performance

On May 22, 2015 Tonic Train (Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann) teamed up with Peter Flemming in a live improvisation combining the instrumentation used in their performances from that same night. Peter Flemming performed with the instrument/sculpture from his piece "VibWav" which explores the natural resonant frequencies of a variety of objects. For Tonic Train Sarah Washington had a complement of homemade circuit-bent instruments while Knut Aufermann used a feedback mixer and together they coaxed out unintended sounds from their electronic technology. Tonic Train is the long-standing experimental electronics duo of Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann (aka Mobile Radio). The combination of Sarah's homemade circuit-bent instruments and Knut's feedback mixer creates a rich spectrum of fundamental electronic noises. They combine two methods of electronic music production: the appropriation of electronic circuits to make components produce otherwise unwanted sounds and the improper use of audio equipment to make it feed back. This includes a specific interest in radio technology, and micro transmission is an important part of the sound field they create. Peter Flemming is a full-time artist, part-time professor and some-time curator in Montréal. Research interests include ad hoc architecture, informal physics, electromagneticks, radio, neuromimes/neural networks, solar power, saunas. Flemming's work considers natural and technological ecologies, in site-specific installations and performance that are resolved intuitively and experimentally.

9. Cross Waves 1 - "Room Tone" curated by Chantal Dumas

Cross Waves 1 -

The Room Tone (the ambient sound of a room) is the sound color of a place, which occurs when all activity ceases. But a place in a silent state is never silent. The sound continues to live in different registers and intensities, even at its minimum state and the Room Tone will vary depending on the time of day or night. And if a human being is in this silent space and his brain activity vibrates at the rhythm of the space, can we really be sure that the sum of the interior spaces (mental) and exterior (the place) is the zero state of silence?? Or could it be subject to some periods of disruption? — Chantal Dumas Cross Waves is a Canadian Sound Art series that includes performances and internet radio programs curated by eight media artists representing various regional and cultural perspectives in Canada: Chantal Dumas, Steve Bates, Jason Ryle, Peter Courtemanche, Janna Graham, Christof Migone, Anna Friz and Eleanor King.

Jullian Hoff -

Deep Wireless 9 online album is published by New Adventures in Sound Art. "Chants migratoires" is inspired by surrealism. Its journey contrasts aerial views with terrestrial activity, mechanical monsters with tiny singers (witnesses to the tumult). Across the vast spaces it suggests, these elements transform, mimic, quarrel and harmonize with each other. Jullian Hoff was born in Metz, France, in 1980. He developed his first writing electroacoustic techniques using digital tools since 1997. Later, he studied jazz and classical guitar and finally electroacoustic composition at the University of Montreal, the city where he has lived since 2009. He was awarded at the JTTP competition of the C.E.C and at the Musicacoustica competition (Beijing).

Sarah-Leith Izzard -

Deep Wireless 9 online album is published by New Adventures in Sound Art. Inspired by oceanographer Sylvia Earle’s record breaking deep-sea dive in 1979, 'Her Deepness / And Then She Stepped Into The Abyss' combines manipulated field-recordings sourced from deep sea research units, and acousmatic sound sources, to explore the tradition of sonic storytelling – creating a ‘cinema of the mind’ without the traditional verbal cues. The intention of this piece is to evoke an intense and immersive sense of place – both real and imagined, physical and psychological. From the surface the listener descends alone into darkness, bioluminescent creatures appear and a psychological transformation occurs as ‘she’ goes deeper. Lyrics from The Tempest by W. Shakespeare. Sarah-Leith Izzard was born in New Zealand and is now based in Sydney, Australia. A graduate of both the Elam School of Fine Art in Auckland New Zealand, and the University of Technology Sydney, her work focuses on using sound, spatialization and interactivity to challenge and extend perceptions of reality.

Deep Wireless 9 online album is published by New Adventures in Sound Art. "Annapurna Pastoral – One Hundred Springs" Opening – Ascent – One Hundred Springs – Turning the Wheel of Dharma – Closing ‘Annapurna Pastoral’ is a meditation on the Himalayan soundscapes of Annapurna. The work, a loose narrative of a pilgrimage to Muktinath (also known as Chumig Gyatsa the site of 'One Hundred Springs'), tries to capture the peaceful, pastoral nature of these remote locations while referencing the deep-rooted spiritualism that the Himalaya inspire. Subverted references to the musical pastorale can be heard in the sound of the bansuri, sarangi and the use of drones. The field recordings were made in the Annapurna region, Nepal 2007. Iain Armstrong is a composer, sound artist and performer based in Birmingham, UK.

The idea was to produce a twenty-four-hour radio art event - a radio station that was completely devoted to live creative work and experimental audio art. In effect, we asked the question: "What would happen if your local pop-radio station suddenly changed to an all audio-art format?" "Radio with Everything at Hand" takes a look at the first four years of this event - an event that continues to this day, happening every year on January 17th on CITR FM, the campus radio station at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. The DJs and artists involved with the early editions of "24 Hours" used voice, turntables, CDs, cassettes, DAT, reel-to-reel tape loops, electronic instruments, samples from TV and cinema, scrap metal, oil drums, and field recordings to create massively layered walls of noise and more subtly layered waves of ambience. This episode of Cross Waves will explore this history through commentary and excerpts form the original radio shows.

SoundBash 2014 - Glen Hall (Part One)

Part One of a live performance by Glen Hall at the NAISA Sound Bash in March 2014. For the month of March 2014, NAISA’s installation space was filled with everyday objects especially selected for the interesting sounds they make when struck or played, offering the public a chance to play with sound and manipulate it live. A weekly series of performances transformed the installation into a performance instrument featuring many local sound artists, including Glen Hall. Glen Hall is a composer/improviser/multi-instrumentalist who studied with Gyorgy Ligeti, Mauricio Kagel and Joel Chadabe at Berklee College of Music. He has recorded with arranger Gil Evans, trombonist Roswell Rudd and Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo.

Radio waves exist within time and frequency. The medium of radio requires expressive signals and receivers. One little clock radio offers so much information and uses. Rogers played (with) four clock radios in a performance that exemplified how we receive this information and signals.

To read more visit - naisa.ca/festivals/cross-waves-series/ Cross Waves Series #2: Nothing (Repeated) From 10 November 2012, 22:00 to 10 November 2013, 22:00 on 88.0 FM from the radiating point of 45º 31’ 49.7186” N / 73º 36’ 23.8114” W (position error +/- 213’), a signal of 25mW broadcast silence was transmitted. This broadcast was in the form of a community service to quieten the FM radio band at this frequency for a period of one year. At present, a naturally occurring broadband noise has returned, saturating this frequency. It is unclear, at this point in time, what the concrete benefits of this action were other than a quieter FM band. We can only imagine some of the outcomes. Nothing (Repeated) carries on with this impulse of quieting the FM dial with the work of a group of Canadian artists invited to consider the reduced, the silence, the hyper-quiet, the voided and open spaces. These artists include crys cole, Peter Courtemanche, Christof Migone, Douglas Moffat, jake moore, and Erin Sexton. A live performance by Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt is also part of this program. Nothing (Repeated) opens with a discussion by curator, Steve Bates, into the motivations to broadcast such a reduced space. Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt performs Sappho (now again), a new work inspired by the lyric poetry of Sappho, and the blank spaces left in the historical ledger.
