Produced by Darren Copeland.

Host Darren Copeland talks with Canadian interactive media artist Don Ritter for this episode of Making Waves, which is also available as a video podcast on the NAISATube YouTube channel. Don Ritter's sound installation "O telephone" is currently being shown at the NAISA North Media Arts Centre in South River Canada. Ritter and Copeland discuss the use of sound in Ritter's interactive media works since the 1990's and how "O telephone" is a much different piece than his other works. The installation was originally made in 2007 for six telephones and eight speakers. The version at NAISA uses just one telephone along with the 8 speakers.

This monthly program is produced by New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA). The program features selections from the NAISA archives and is produced by Darren Copeland, NAISA Artistic Director. NAISA is a South River-based Canadian organization that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of electroacoustic and experimental sound art. The objectives of NAISA are to foster awareness and understanding locally, as well as nationally and internationally, in the cultural vitality of experimental sound art in its myriad forms of expression.
