Sounds Like 8: Interventions

October 4-7, 2018

The eighth edition of Saskatoon’s annual Sounds Like (An Audio Festival) unfolds across the city October 4th to 7th. Presented and curated by the Unheard Sound Collective, this year’s festival explores the theme of Interventions. Through audio-based installations, performances and workshops, artists from across Canada, USA, Japan, and UK will intervene in a variety of physical and social spaces to transform the everyday into truly unique sonic experiences. 

Thanks to venue support from community partners Remai Modern, PAVED Arts, La Troupe du Jour, The Broadway Theatre, and The Underground Cafe, Sounds Like extends the conversation to a broad public, creating an event that is as much about careful listening as it is about creative expression.

Sounds Like - An Audio Festival:

Sounds Like is an annual audio art festival based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Started in 2011 by AKA artist-run, it quickly expanded to a three-fold partnership between PAVED Arts, a Saskatoon media based artist-run gallery and production centre and Holophon, a non-profit organization that seeks to unite communities using sound as an artistic medium.

Under the direction of PAVED Arts through 2016-17, Sounds Like was reformatted as an annual project of sustained curatorial exploration with an annual theme. PAVED Arts engaged Saskatoon’s Unheard Sound Collective to curate the 7th edition of the festival. Beginning with the 8th edition in 2018, Sounds Like is under the direction of the Unheard Sound Collective.

Sounds Like is made possible through the generous support of Canada Council for the Arts, The Saskatchewan Arts Board and SaskCulture, as well as our local community partners PAVED Arts, Remai Modern, The Broadway Theatre, La Troupe du Jour and our amazing volunteers.
