Sounds Like (an Audio Festival)       

Now – Sat.

Various Venues

The theme for this year’s festival is Real Sound and will feature performances and installations at Paved Arts, the Remai Modern, St. Thomas Wesley United Church and the Elk’s Hall. Artists from all over North America and two artists from Japan will be here to take part. One cool element you should check out is a special roaming presentation down on the riverbank Friday. Holophon Audio Arts is presenting Tuning In: Sound Ecology Walking Tour with Ernie Dulanowsky. This is the kind of festival that pushes the barriers of what we’re used to hearing, manipulating instruments and other objects to create new sounds. It encourages the audience to be affected by sound in all its forms. Tickets are $15 and a weekend pass is $25.
