Jamie Woollard is a pianist and experimental composer based in Tio’tia:ke (Montreal) in Kanien’kehá:ka territory. Her work with soundscape, performance and multi-channel composition is guided by a focus on place. She has published research on emergent practices in laptop music, and often collaborates on film and video works. Jamie recently returned home from a six-week residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, where she created the multi-movement work “Heat Wave”, a solo performance for extended piano and analog synthesizer.
