As an artist, Vanessa is fascinated by the manifestations of serendipity in life. Originating from Montréal, she specialised in electroacoustic music, a medium she now uses as a means to express poetic ideas whilst being anchored in the many different spaces and cultural environments she is inspired by. Her works have been performed amongst others at the ZKM (DE), NWEAMO Festival (JP/US), EMUFest (IT), Miso Music (PT), NYCEMF (US), TES (CA), Ai-Maako (CL), FRST (SE), MOKS (EE) and one of her latest works has received the JTTP Canadian Electroacoustic Award. Having completed a master’s degree with distinction in electroacoustic composition at the Conservatoire de Montréal, she is currently exploring some of the different occurrences of environment in acousmatic music through her composition. As part of her current research at the University of Sheffield, she is now conducting an Erasmus+ project through her PhD work in conjunction with EMS Stockholm as a freelance composer.
