Jamie Woollard is a composer and performer. She grew up on the prairies and is now based in Tio’tia:ke (Montreal, Canada). Jamie creates soundscapes, film scores and performances, with an emphasis on surrounding the listener with sound to produce an immersive experience.
Jamie trained as a classical pianist for twenty years before becoming interested in electronic composition. She studied both classical piano performance and electroacoustics at Concordia University, where she completed a BFA in 2014. After collaborating with filmmakers for several years, she created Heat Wave, a solo performance for piano and analog synth, and Immortal Words, a solo album based on the poetry of bisexual writers throughout history.
Jamie is currently working on Thin Walls / Voisines, a play about the intertwining lives of neighbours living in a Montreal sixplex. This project is part of a research-creation masters program at Concordia University, where Jamie also works for PULSE Lab, investigating performance and urban practices under Dr. Shauna Janssen.
In 2021, Jamie will be heading to the Arctic Circle with filmmaker Laura Magnusson to work on an experimental documentary, The Saga of Hafrùn.
