This episode of Making Waves profiles two artists that come to sound art via other artistic disciplines and who are showing work this summer at the NAISA North Media Arts Centre in South River Ontario. Jonathan Tyrrell is trained in architecture and is creating interactive media placed-based works that he describes as event-based architecture. Sandy McLennan is a filmmaker and photographer using hand-made analog techniques. He has created the interactive installation "My Place Here and Now," which through workshops with Grade 7 students at South River Public School, mixes pinhole photography and interactive digital sound.

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.
