Thank you Camp Wavelength!

Cubeism 2

Wow, what an amazing weekend! Camp Wavelength was definitely one of the highlights of the summer, filled with awesome music, fantastic art, and new friends. SubZeroArts were really flattered to be included in such an excellent collection of talents, and we’re really thrilled that you all enjoyed Cubeism so much!

Every day of the weekend had some really amazing highlights for us. All the bands we saw were great, particularly Loscil, Pierre Kwenders, and Absolutely Free and Petrina Ng. We also really enjoyed the art installations, especially our neighbours the Laser Dragon and the Space Ants, together with the Cubes we think that our shared little neck of the woods was a pretty cool place to be.

In-Synch were fabulous, and we totally want bat-wing swimming caps now, and Open Fortress were another highlight with their haunting performance in the lake on Saturday. The weather was perfect, just the right blend of overcast light to complement the otherworldly element of their work.

We want to thank all of the event staff and volunteers who worked so hard to make everything happen, you’re all amazing and incredible and awesomely awesome and the best of hosts. Particularly big applause goes out to Evely, who drove us everywhere we needed to go all weekend long, the sound and power staff who stretched cables and gave us sound and power, and especially Aaron Dawson, who was such an incredible support for us in the weeks leading up to the event and was able to help us with everything we needed over the weekend. It takes a ton of people to make an event like this happen, and all of you deserve a big huge standing ovation for everything you’ve done!

So now that the weekend is over, we’re wondering if we can do it again next weekend?

Having a great time at Camp Wavelength…

It’s getting closer…


We’re less than one week away from Camp Wavelength, and we’ve been working like busy little bees to get everything ready for the debut of Cubeism. It’s been a long time since we’ve done an installation in Toronto and we’re really excited about sharing the cubes with all of our T-Dot friends!

So a few of you have already been in touch with us about details and logistics and all that super-important stuff. So we’ve been directing everybody to this awesomely awesome Camp Wavelength Info page that details everything you need to know about ticket prices, set times, traveling to the site by ferry, and what to bring for camping, among other good stuff like band bios and other neat things including a picture of us in our parkas on page 18 taken by our friend Melanie May Taillon! And just so you know, if you aren’t really that interested in camping, there are also day passes available too so you can enjoy the show and then go home to sleep in your own bed afterwards if you want.

So yeah, everything is coming together nicely, we’re really excited about next weekend, and we hope you are too!

Cubeism at Camp Wavelength in Toronto, August 28-30

wavelength2015-webgraphics-slide2SubZeroArts are pleased to announce that we’ll be presenting our latest installation “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.

We’ll be giving you some more details as we get closer to the show, but 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.

Looking forward to seeing you at Camp Wavelength!

Announcing TouchCubes!


Dearest friends;

SubZeroArts is very happy to announce that our latest 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 being touched 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, and we’re looking forward to meeting all of you! Be sure to keep checking back here at http://www.subzeroarts.com for more information about “TouchCubes” and Art Souterrain, or feel free to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter so you can stay in the loop.
