Anju Singh (2024 — present)

I share with CNMN a per­son­al com­mit­ment to devel­op­ing and sup­port­ing new music works and exper­i­men­ta­tion in music and sound across Cana­da. As a nation­al com­mu­ni­ty of artists, we all ben­e­fit when we have more oppor­tu­ni­ties to con­nect and learn about one anoth­er’s work. A new music net­work is an excit­ing and grow­ing concept. 

Anju Singh is a com­pos­er, mul­ti-instru­men­tal­ist, noise/sound artist and video artist based in Van­cou­ver. Her sound and image-based works focus on tex­ture, den­si­ty, and extreme dynam­ics. She uses tra­di­tion­al instru­ments, extend­ed or exper­i­men­tal tech­niques, elec­tron­ic pro­cess­ing, non-musi­cal mate­ri­als and objects, and cus­tom built tools and instru­ments to exper­i­ment and devel­op her works. A core aspect of her prac­tice is to use meth­ods of decon­struc­tion and rean­i­ma­tion to repur­pose and con­tex­tu­al­ize mate­ri­als in new com­po­si­tion­al environments. 

Anju is an active tour­ing artist and has pre­sent­ed and per­formed her work across Cana­da, in Europe, Brazil, Mex­i­co, and the Unit­ed States in a vari­ety of spaces includ­ing at Fylkin­gen in Stock­holm, Swe­den; Send + Receive Fes­ti­val in Win­nipeg; Van­cou­ver Jazz Fes­ti­val; Poly­gon Gallery; New Forms Fes­ti­val; and most recent­ly on tour in Japan.
