Sound Art Program

The CRES Media Arts Committee (MAC) is dedicated to serving, supporting, and building on the sound art and experimental audio community in Vancouver as well as supporting audio artists from around the world. The focus on the program is local and Canadian sound artists; however, proposals from international applicants will be considered.

MAC is run from Studio B at Vancouver Co-operative Radio, located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The program offers artists and members the opportunity to borrow professional audio equipment. The studio has the latest version of Pro Tools as well as other audio mixing and editing software and hardware that is necessary for studio use. MAC offers a Sound Artist in Residence program for emerging sound artists, an Audio Art Commissioning series, and a variety of workshops and events with experienced guest and in station facilitators.
