Our visual arts project, SubZeroArts, will be presenting our new multi-point sound/art installation Transmissions at 401 Richmond as part of Nuit Blanche Toronto on Saturday, September 30th!

Transmissions creates an aural environment defined by white noise as broadcast by 16 mounted antennae-like metal spires positioned within a contained location. The sounds of cosmic radiation, sun spots, encryption anomalies, and more are all interwoven by the spires to create a unique environment defined by audio frequency radio waves such as tweaks, crackles, and swishes, bringing previously unheard sounds to the forefront of consciousness, inviting participants to acknowledge and experience their aesthetic nature without subconscious filters. Through the creation of this new environment within a previously existing location, participants will be encouraged to recognize the reality of the myriad spaces around them, and the many possible futures that those spaces offer.

We’re very excited about presenting Transmissions as part of Nuit Blanche Toronto, and we’ll be sharing more information with you over the next few weeks leading up to the event. In the meantime, be sure to like SubZeroArts on Facebook or add us on Twitter or Instagram to keep up to date with all the details!

naisa2017-webgraphics-blogpost1Our visual art project SubZeroArts is very pleased to announce that our latest installation Transmissions will be presented by New Adventures in Sound Art at NAISA North Gallery in South River. Transmissions is a multi-point sound art installation that uses a collection of touch-sensitive antennae to trigger abstract sounds and tones, creating a unique sound environment for audience participants to explore. We’re thrilled to be working with NAISA again, and we hope that you’ll come out and see Transmissions if you’re in the area!

NAISA North Gallery is located at 106 Ottawa Avenue, South River, Ontario, and Transmissions will be on display from February 4th to 26th on Saturdays and Sundays between 11am and 4pm. More information about NAISA can be found on their website.

ast2016-webgraphicsSubZeroArts‘ latest sound-art experience “Transmissions” will make it’s debut as part of Montreal’s Art Souterrain between February 27th and March 20th, 2016.

“Transmissions” is a new installation exploring the concept of Noise as Art. Using naturally occurring white noise, “Transmissions” establishes a new space for audience exploration created by naturally occurring white noise and sounds hidden deep within silence and lost radio signals. “Transmissions” exposes the audience to a more natural state of hearing through an aural environment defined by super-positioning white noise as received, processed, and broadcast by a collection of antennae-like metal spires located around the staging area. While these naturally occurring aural sources are normally filtered out of our conscious hearing, “Transmissions” discretely blends these sources to create a fluid soundscape defined by audio frequency radio waves that we would normally be unaware of, providing an opportunity to experience a more accurate representation of the natural sounds that surround us.

We’re both very excited about returning to Montreal, and we’ll be sharing more information about “Transmissions” with you on the SubZeroArts site over the next few days leading up to the event. In the meantime, be sure to like SubZeroArts on Facebook or add SubZeroArts on Twitter to keep up to date with all the details.

wavelength2015-webgraphicsWe’re very pleased to announce that we’ll be presenting the latest installation from SubZeroArts, “Cubeism”, as part of Camp Wavelength at Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Island, August 28th to 31st. It’s been a long time since we’ve done something in Toronto and we’re really looking forward to seeing you there!

Cubeism is a new installation we’ve created for Camp Wavelength that uses light and sound to inform a location, creating a soothing new space to explore. We think it’s perfect for an outdoor event like Camp Wavelength which sounds to us like the best show of the summer. With bands like Holy Fuck, The Wooden Sky, Do Make Say Think, Loscil and more, Camp Wavelength promises to be a weekend to remember and we’re thrilled to be part of it.

Stop by SubZeroArts.com to find out more details about “Cubeism”, or if you’re interested in finding out more about what’s in store that weekend you can visit the Camp Wavelength site. And if you want to keep up with SubZeroArts, be sure to like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter.

ast2015-webgraphics1Deane and I are very happy to announce that the latest SubZeroArts installation, “TouchCubes”, will be on display from February 28th to March 15th as part of Art Souterrain in Montreal, Quebec.

“TouchCubes” is a brand new installation featuring a collection of interactive cubes that respond to touch by illuminating and emitting soft soothing music. In keeping with SubZeroArts’ ideal that the audience should be part of the art, “TouchCubes” allows participants to influence and create their own artistic experience, sharing in the creative process.

We’re very happy to be presenting “TouchCubes” to a whole new audience in Montreal. Visit subzeroarts.com for more information about “TouchCubes” and Art Souterrain, or feel free to like SubZeroArts on Facebook or follow SubZeroArts on Twitter so you can stay in the loop.

Thank you for coming out!

Thanks very much to everyone who made it out to our show at the Ambient Ping! We had a wonderful time playing with our friends dreamSTATE, and the light show by General Chaos Visuals was quite striking. Thank you also to all of you that tuned into the Livestream broadcast of the night, we were very happy to be able to perform for some of our friends that live a little farther away from Toronto. If you didn’t have a chance to watch last night, an archived copy of the show is posted at http://www.livestream.com/theambientping so you can enjoy it at your leisure.

If you have any pictures or video of the show that you’d like to share with us, please be sure to let us know because we’d love to see them!

Over the next few weeks we’ll be focusing our energies on SubZeroArts‘ presentation of LIGHTSOUNDPLAY! at Nuit Blanche Ottawa in September (visit http://www.subzeroarts.com/ to find out more!), and we’ll have some more events to announce in the months to come. We’ll keep you updated on everything as it gets confirmed!

Thanks again, we’ll be seeing you soon!
