This year's Sounds Like Audio Arts Festival will be curated by the Unheard Sound Series hosting night events under the title "Sounds Like at Nite".
Background: Formed in Saskatoon in the summer of 2015 by Travis Cole, Tod Emel and Chad Munson, the Unheard Sound Series (USS) is an ad hoc curatorial collective focused on experimental audio art. In our first season, we established a monthly curated program of live audio performances. We’re very excited to be organizing an evening for the new Sounds Like at night.
Our mission is to serve as a catalyst for innovative audio art practices, to make the unheard audible. Creating live performance opportunities for emerging and experimental audio artists, USS is a platform for the unexpected to happen.
Our vision is to bring wider critical attention to local emerging audio artists by contextualizing their work alongside internationally recognized contemporary practices.
(Hosting on the eve of Friday July 15th. Performances by: Pulsewidth, VC Vibes (Jon Vaughn), Josh Rohs, Alexandre St-Onge, Steve Bates, and Xod performing DJ sets in-between acts)
