Abstract

Betsey Biggs is a composer and artist whose practice in music, sound, video, and installation aims to explore the resonance between sound and image; to actively engage the audience; and to explore the relationships among sound, memory, and geography. Her work has been described by the New Yorker as "psychologically complex, exposing how we orient ourselves with our ears." She has collaborated with musicians and artists including Margaret Lancaster, Evidence, the Now Ensemble, the BSC, So Percussion, Tarab Cello Ensemble, and the Nash Ensemble and with filmmakers Jennie Livingston and Amy Harrison. Her work has been seen and heard at venues as disparate as ISSUE Project Room, Abrons Arts Center, the Conflux Festival, MASSMoCA, and the Sundance Film Festival and on the streets of Oakland, Red Hook, Williamsburg, and the Gowanus. Biggs holds a PhD in music composition from Princeton University and is currently a visiting scholar at Brown University. Anna Hoefnagels is associate professor in the School for Studies in Art and Culture (Music) at Carleton University, in Ottawa, Canada, where she teaches courses on First Peoples' music, Canadian music, ethnomusicology, and music and gender, among others.
