</H5></SPAN><FONT COLOR="#555555"><SPAN STYLE='font-size:12.0px'>The New Forms Festival is an annual event highlighting emerging forms at the junction of art, culture and technology. It includes performances, panel discussions, workshops, and interactive exhibits on &nbsp;contemporary Media Arts issues. The NFF environment encourages new forms of Media Art &nbsp;to be created, experienced, and understood. NFF04 will be held in Vancouver, BC, from &nbsp;October 14 to 28, 2004. The theme is TECHNOGRAPHY: the inscription of culture in technology. <BR>
NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY is a forum to explore and embody these inscriptions in the form of artistic expression and &nbsp;discourse. <BR>
NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY looks at the ways in which cultures inhabit and transform media spaces and technologies. <BR>
NFF04:TECHNOGRAPHY will &nbsp;bring together practitioners and theorists from across grassroots, gallery academy and &nbsp;academic contexts and provide a platform for conversations among the diverse voices of &nbsp;contemporary &nbsp;digital regionalism. <BR>
NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY programming incorporates the principles found within an ecological model of the cultural &nbsp;sphere: complexity, variety and balance. Like nature, culture is also a changing phenomenon, &nbsp;affected by the ways in which technology inhabits the environment and relates to it. <BR>

</H5></SPAN><SPAN STYLE='font-size:12.0px'>Proposals are invited for four areas of the festival: the Conference, the Exhibition (digital art, performance, installation, immersive environments, Net.Art), Performance Series (sound art, performance art, live film/AV) and Low Art Events (music, visuals, post-digital, laptop, group performance, screenings). <BR>

</H5></SPAN><SPAN STYLE='font-size:12.0px'>The NFF04 Conference, <I>Old And New Forms </I>, negotiates new global parameters for contemporary media culture, as it charts a post-traditional &#8216;technography&#8217; of world Media Arts. The post-traditional is what remains of modernism and postmodernism when modernization is abandoned as an unfinished and unachievable project. While the post-traditional view is clearly meaningful in the post-colonial and developing spheres, Old And New Forms posits that it is equally germane to the global post-industrial &nbsp;scenario as a whole. <BR>

The sonic art event will present works that make use of audible technologies and acoustic materials in an aural cultural context that explores the spectrum of the living ambient in volumes, atmospheres, resonance, aural surfaces and textures, as well as breaking through to relations with other senses .<BR>
Sound in the current global scene is more promiscuous than ever. &nbsp;The musician is a viral agent&#8212;both carrier and host&#8212;accumulating a lifetime of influences across a dizzying variety of sources from the funky beats of the body drumming to the internal networks of psychoacoustic phenomena&#8212;the subtle nuances of the richest traditions of the planet come into contact with the digital techniques of a recombinant poetics. &nbsp;<BR>
The performer is challenged by the technical apparatus of digital reproduction&#8212;an apparatus that reproduces not just the sound of the music but its inner mechanisms&#8212;an instrument that has transformed itself in the hands of a musician into a proposition for a new form of the world in relationship to technology&#8212;a technology come to life and agency, at its best a partner in the moment of sound making. &nbsp;<BR>
