New Electronic Work

We had our last EQ session last week and what an inspiring 5 months it’s been! I’ve met such a great group of artists and learned so much about how to approach electronics in my compositional practice from Rose Bolton and the other participants. I hope this program continues on to keep building a foundation for women in electronics.

Throughout the workshop, I’ve been composing a series of electronic pieces that are finally finished! This has been new territory for me, composing solely in this medium and it’s been an eye- opening process from start to finish. Check out my new piece wonted below:

New Projects & Performances

It’s been a busy few weeks! I recently had two Ontario premieres of my pieces Cosmosis and Falling (into the unknown) at Between the Ears Festival in Waterloo with a program that included a piece by Linda Catlin Smith and works by the Kitchener-Waterloo Composers Collective.

I was also fortunate to have the 3rd performance of RE:connect in Ottawa at the Ottawa Dance Directive presented by the Movement Gallery at their debut show. This piece has grown so much since it’s premiere last May and so thankful to have such dedicated performers and collaborative partner.

I’m now currently working on an orchestral piece over the summer and a commission from Caution Tape Sound Collective for solo percussion, electronics, and movement for fall 2017. Lots on the go and I’m excited to continue working on these projects!

The Movement Gallery Show

Looking forward to the third performance of my piece RE:connect with The Movement Gallery’s debut show in Ottawa on June 2nd! Check it out if you can.
