Alexandra Spence

Alexandra Spence is a sound artist and improvising clarinettist from Sydney, Australia, currently based in Vancouver, Canada. She works within the fields of improvised music, electroacoustic composition and multimedia installation. Alex is interested in the relationship between humans and their sonic environments, in the connection between sound and its context, and its relationship to experience, feeling, memory and place. Alex is influenced by landscapes, cityscapes and considerations of geographical identity. She is inspired by the idea of ‘collaborating’ with one’s environment. Alex has performed and presented work in concerts, festivals, symposiums and galleries in Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy and France, including the NOW Now Festival, Sydney, Australia, the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium, and the FKL Symposium, Besenello, Italy.
