Transmissions at Nuit Blanche Toronto!

NBTO2017-webgraphics-blogpost-1SubZeroArts is very pleased to announce that our latest multi-point sound/art installation Transmissions will be presented 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 us on Facebook or add us on Twitter or Instagram to keep up to date with all the details!

So a lot of people have asked us, “Is SubZeroArts going to be doing something for Nuit Blanche Toronto this year?” And we’re afraid the answer is that we won’t be. But rest assured that we have lots of plans for 2013 and we hope that all of our friends in Toronto, Ottawa, and beyond will be able to enjoy them!  So keep in touch, okay?

Despite not having an installation in this year’s Toronto event, we’re still very excited to check out what’s happening around the city, and we encourage you all to do the same. Here are a few of the things we’re looking forward to;

Liquid Cohesion (Commerce Court Central Courtyard & Fountain, 25 King Street West):

We’re always interested to see how artists interpret and distinguish the lines between people and nature, and this unique video installation promises a new perspective that intrigues us.  Plus, y’know, elephants…

Civilization (Megaplex), 2010 by Marco Brambilla (Toronto City Hall Rotunda – 100 Queen Street West)

This display of looped video sounds promising, and appeals to our existential leanings…

Museum of the Rapture (Toronto City Hall underground parking garage, 100 Queen Street West)

Douglas Coupland has designed a unique installation experience that promises to be a fascinating study of how current society interacts and intersects with technology. It sounds pretty awesome!

“Cent une tueries de zombies” (The TIFF Bell Lightbox at 350 King Street West):

Really, who doesn’t love Zombies? Watch 101 Zombie death scenes in the comfort of the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Amidst all the horror you may figure out some survival tips that your predecessors didn’t and be <> much more prepared for the inevitable Zombie apocalypse…

Needless to say, these are just a few of the many pieces being exhibited around the city (you can see some more suggestions on the SubZeroArts tumblr page), and we encourage you to let us know what you’re interested in seeing.  Add us on Twitter (@SubZeroArts) and share your own Nuit Blanche Toronto experience with us!  We look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes and good luck to all of the artists who are participating in tonight’s event!  Remember to keep hydrated and pace yourselves, it’s gonna be a long and awesome night…
