I’m an interdisicplinary performance maker, composer, and educator from Winnipeg, Canada on Treaty 1 territory. From choral music to field recording practices, I’m preoccupied with the conjoining potentials of voice, turning to choruses as a model and metaphor for conceptualising how voices sound out living networks. In my current research with frog mating choruses, I listen for the vocal artefacts that emerge between frogs, humans, and recording technologies within the sonic practices of bioacoustics. Voice is at once a philosophical playground as well as my favourite instrument to sing!
When I’m not field recording or writing or composing about amphibians you can find me working in a range of collaborations from musical theatre to composing for dance and film. I teach choir, performing arts, and experimental sound workshops in schools between Canada and Switzerland. I hold a Bachelor of Music from Canadian Mennonite University, a Bachelor of Education from University of Manitoba, and a Master of Fine Arts from the School for Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University. I currently reside on the stolen ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations known as Vancouver.
