Sapphire Haze

Sapphire Haze is a composer-performer duo residing on unceded Swwú7mesh, Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh and xʷməθəy̓əm land (Vancouver, Canada).

With Cindy Kao on violin and Aysha Dulong on electronics, the duo utilizes sound-to-colour synaesthesia as a compositional tool. They work in a hybridized model, and aim to blur the distinction between acoustic and electronic sound. Sapphire Haze explores how sound can embody lived experiences and can be utilized to express oneself. As a duo, their work has been presented at SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts, Vines Art Festival and Modulus Festival. Currently, they are the featured artist for Music on Main’s 2021/2022 Emerge on Main program, and recently performed at The Fox Cabaret. They will be making their international debut at the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival in June 2022.
