SARAH ROSSY

about

SARAH ROSSY IS A MYTHICAL SONIC CREATURE OF SORTS, WITH A VOICE THAT IS COLOURFULLY CHAMELEONIC YET VULNERABLY HUMAN.

Bouncing between her hometown of Tio’tia:ke (Montréal), New York City, and Berlin, she combines influences of jazz, experimental music, and interdisciplinary movement practices into her work for a truly unique result. As a composer, she has a keen interest in experiential processes which traverse through a feminist lens and nurture the ecosystems of artistic community. Recent excursions include: studying with Meredith Monk, pursuing voice/movement research at The World is Sound (Berlin), composing for the Montreal Contemporary Music Lab, exploring her ethnic heritage at the Arabic Music Retreat, and attending multiple residencies at Banff Centre for the Arts. Sarah is a recent (and first Canadian) finalist of the Ella Fitzgerald International Voice Competition, and her research has been graciously supported by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec, Conseil des arts de Montréal, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Socan Foundation. She holds both a B.Mus and M.Mus from McGill University, where she was mentored by composers John Hollenbeck and Christine Jensen. In 2019, she released a debut EP, The Conclusion (Florafone Records), and is anticipating the release of a full-length album in 2021.
