SOUNDplay Exhibition at NAISA

October 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The SOUNDplay festival features two new installations by leading Canadian media artists Don Ritter and Jessica Thompson from September 14 to December 4, 2023. Admission is by Donation. Café service is available. Visitors to “O telephone” by Don Ritter experience a contemplative and responsive sound environment comprised of a ringing 1960’s telephone and recordings of voices speaking ‘om.’ The installation recognizes various types of interactions between visitors and the phone and responds with a corresponding multi-channel listening experience. 
Jessica Thompson’s “Borderline (Almaguin Highlands)” is a critical mapmaking project that uses sound to illuminate social and economic differences in local geographies. During the exhibition, visitors are invited to contribute to a large-scale soundmap of the Almaguin Highlands by borrowing a toolkit to map sounds in areas of their choice, or by using the Borderline iOS app. The sounds collected will be added to the map on an ongoing basis until the end the exhibition.
