New Adventures in Sound Art says
NAISA is pleased to announce the 5th edition of the TransX Transmission Art Symposium, running February 16-19 2017 at Geary Lane in Toronto plus special presentations at DisPersion Lab and inter/access.

The symposium will include panel discussions, paper presentations, and performances, as well as a full day of workshops as part of the annual Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art. Rooted in the earliest experiments with radio, Transmission Art has continued to flourish into the 21st Century with experiments using wireless communications technology over the past 100 years, including the exploration of a variety of mobile-based platforms such as GPS, phone apps, bluetooth and WiFi communication, as well as lesser-known forms of transmission, such as VLF.
