March Performances

It’s been a busy month of performances and rehearsals! I had two premieres this month. without ground was premiered by Blue Rider Ensemble at the Canadian Music Centre on March 10th followed by two more performances in Waterloo and Montréal. It has been such an amazing opportunity to have worked with the ensemble and I couldn’t be happier with how beautifully they performed the piece.

My piece, into a landscape, unrest had its premiere with Caution Tape Sound Collective’s Quintile show on March 18 at Array Space in Toronto. This piece was a different direction for me and I was really pleased with how it all turned out. It was so great to work with dedicated and sensitive musicians and for the opportunity to experiment and try new ideas.

Participant in EQ Program

I’m very excited to be a chosen participant in the 2nd edition of EQ: Women in Electronic Music program, hosted by the Canadian Music Centre. The workshop is facilitated by composer and sound artist Rose Bolton, focusing on mentorship and community building among women who create electronic music.  This is a 6 month long mentorship with 7 other artists. I’m really looking forward to gaining more knowledge about electronic music creation and to learn from these wonderful composers and artists!
