Sonar encapsulates the shifting field of local sound art explorations: the term originated as an acronym meaning “SOund Navigation And Ranging”.
Reflecting connections to multimedia and performance based practices, and fueled by support from a DIY underground music scene, Edmonton is now a base for sound artists exploring the technical and conceptual boundaries of this interdisciplinary medium.
Sonar will feature a diverse range of sound projects through recordings, interactive sound environments and sound installations referencing noise, electroacoustic, experimental and minimalist sound art practices.
SONAR: Sound Art Explorations by Edmonton Artists is curated by Kristy Trinier and features artwork by following artists:
Cecil Frena & Matthew Skopyk
Gary James Joynes
Nulle Part (Jason Troock & Ben Good)
