“It’s a real joy to be joining up with such an innovative and community-engaged organization as Music on Main. I’m hugely looking forward to new collaborations and conversations.”

-Sabrina Schroeder, composer in residence

Enter Sabrina Schroeder, a composer-performer and Assistant Professor of Composition at Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts. Using new technology like tactile transducers, live processing, and self-built mechanics, Sabrina’s immersive, palpable performances centre not only on her music, but on the body-feel that emanates from it.
