SONAR: Sound Art Explorations by Edmonton artists

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:

Mackenzy Albright

Jessie Beier

Raylene Campbell

Cecil Frena & Matthew Skopyk

Gary James Joynes

Shawn Pinchbeck

Leslie Sharpe
