Sea of Sound festival to challenge sonic senses

EDMONTON, AB—Edmonton Intermedia Arts Festival³: The Sea of Sound, an event produced by The Works Art & Design Festival, takes place June 24-26 at various locations in downtown Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The event, curated by the Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society (BEAMS), will act like a 12,000 km oil change and tune-up for the ears, revitalizing the way we listen to the world around us. BEAMS will explore this theme by exhibiting works that present the audience, participants or performers with new or innovative approaches to sound art and electroacoustic performance.

The Sea of Sound will feature:
Installations by Steve Heimbecker, Garnet Willis, Ian Birse, Ivika Kivi and Sulo Kallas.

Workshops on sound diffusion, Max/MSP programming, microprocessors and sensors, radio art, algorithmic composition, and much more by: Ken Gregory, Steve Heimbecker, Laurie Radford, Anna Friz, and Garnet Willis.

Live concerts featuring: Anna Friz, Laurie Radford, Shawn Pinchbeck, Don Ross, Clinker, Mark Hannesson, Wayne Defehr, Mark Nerenberg, Jay Lind, John Armstrong, Condoleezza Ric Paddies, and agaperaygunexperiment.

Many of the events will be free to the public. For additional information on The Sea of Sound, check out the BEAMS website at or by emailing the organization at
