About:
Sounds Like is an annual audio festival based in Saskatoon, SK, featuring local and international artists exploring sound-based work.

Sounds Like 7:
As online anonymity has bred aggressive trolls and reactionary outrage culture, and vitriolic soundbites pass for communication, civil discussion is in short supply. With Dialogues, the 7th edition of Sounds Like, we examine how innovative practices in audio art and improvisational musics counter this prevailing social climate. Artists from across Canada, USA, Australia and France have been invited to develop the theme of Dialogues through live performance, installation and workshops. Thanks to venue support from community partners La Troupe du Jour, Remai Modern, and The Broadway Theatre, 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.

Background:
Under the direction of PAVED Arts since 2016, Sounds Like was reformatted as an annual project of sustained curatorial exploration. PAVED Arts has engaged Saskatoon’s Unheard Sound Collective to curate the 7th edition of the festival.

Festival passes $25, individual evening performances $15, after parties without festival pass $5 at the door.
