Making Waves episodes for January through April, 2018 feature artists from the Deep Wireless Festival of Radio and Transmission Art presented by New Adventures in Sound Art. Today's show includes performances and discussion with Martin Marier, which was recorded on January 17 and 19, 2018 during Art's Birthday at the NAISA North Media Arts Centre in South River, Ontario. Martin Marier is a composer and digital music instrument builder. He created the instrument 'The Sponge.' Given the mythology behind Art's Birthday, it is certainly an appropriate instrument for celebrating the birthday of Art.

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.
