Our arts group SubZeroArts is presenting our latest sound-art installation “Transmissions” at the New Adventures in Sound Art at NAISA North Gallery in South River, Ontario.

“Transmissions” is a multi-point sound-art installation that uses a collection of touch-sensitive antennae to trigger abstract sounds and tones, creating a unique sound environment for audience participants to explore.

We’re thrilled to be working with NAISA again, and we hope that you’ll come out and see Transmissions if you’re in the area!

NAISA North Gallery is located at 106 Ottawa Avenue, South River, Ontario, and Transmissions will be on display from February 4th to 26th on Saturdays and Sundays between 11am and 4pm. More information about NAISA can be found on their website



SubZeroArts is presenting our latest work “Transmissions” in Montreal as part of Art SouTerrain — an all-underground arts festival taking place in the passageways beneath the city.

“Transmissions” is a new installation exploring the concept of Noise as Art. Using naturally occurring white noise, “Transmissions” establishes a new space for audience exploration created by naturally occurring white noise and sounds hidden deep within silence and lost radio signals.

Art SouTerrain runs from February 27 to March 20, 201 and coincides with Montreal En Lumiere and Nuit Blanche Montreal.

If you live in Montreal, or plan to visit, this is a great time be in Montreal!



The multimedia arts group of which I am a part of, SubZeroArts, is presenting “Cubeism” – a new light and sound installation at Toronto’s Camp Wavelength taking place at Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Island. This 3-day arts and music festival is the first of its kind and features such performers as Holy Fuck, The Wooden Sky, Do Make Say Think, Loscil and so many more!

Join us for the whole weekend, or on a day-by-day basis!

SubZeroArts is presenting our latest work “TouchCubes” in Montreal as part of Art SouTerrain — an all-underground arts festival taking place in the passageways beneath the city.

“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.

Art SouTerrain runs from February 28 to March 15, 2015 and coincides with Montreal En Lumiere and Nuit Blanche Montreal.

If you live in Montreal, or plan to visit, this is a great time be in Montreal!

Join Akumu and SubZeroArts once again for our latest installation at Nuit Blanche Ottawa Gatineau on September 21st 2013!

SubZeroArts are very pleased to announce that our light/sound installation “Pillars of Light” will make its debut at Club SAW in Ottawa, Ontario on Saturday September 21st, 2013 as part of Nuit Blanche Ottawa Gatineau! Inspired by the beauty of outer space, “Pillars of Light” is a brand new participatory environment designed for NBOG where movement influences a series of illuminated columns within a three dimensional space, creating an active linkage between the audience and their environment through an evolving aural/optical spectacle that evokes nebulae, auroras and other interplanetary phenomena.
