is a musician, composer, sound designer and interdisciplinary artist studying electroacoustics and computation arts at Concordia University in Montreal. Their career as a touring and studio musician spans well over 10 years, multiple countries and numerous instruments, and has now expanded into new forms and new collaborations in digital arts, experimental composition and improvised performance. In creative A/V installations, compositions and performances, the weaving of ‘virtual kinetic’ soundscapes through vibrant, textural worlds take center stage while unique, sonic architecture project sweeping narratives. Creative computing intertwines immersive environments while blurring the line between the aural and visual sonic space. Earlier this year, Alana’s audiovisual composition, Vacillations was presented at the New York City Electroacoustic and Computer Music festival and their score for the short-animated film Something Else has premiered at numerous film festivals around the world.
Alana is the co-coordinator, resident musician and sound designer at the lab, and is currently working on the score for the Restorative Justice Project, while researching the intersections of musicology and generative soundscapes in installation work. Alana is an experienced audio mixer for live and recorded work, with a specialization in multichannel diffusion.
