Anna Höstman

As an artist working in sound and composition, Anna has had her works performed in Canada, China, the United States, England, Mexico, Italy and Russia. Her music seeks out sensory and tactile encounters with the world while also extending into story, memory, history, and landscape. In this way she is actively concerned with research-creation in her practise, whether in chamber music settings or concert-installation. Furthermore, Anna's interest in the experimental use of language and text often results in the creative exploration of processes where source materials can be broken down into fragments and put into new relationships with each other. These processes are guided by cycles of variation drawn from the natural world, by compassion, and by a poetic sense of musical form and play.
