About

Roxanne is a designer, musician and sound artist based in Vancouver, Canada. She is interested in the convergence of sound, design, and motion.

Recently, Roxanne completed a residency at GlogauAIR in Berlin, designing a series of tuned acoustic concrete tiles that respond sonically to the pedestrian step. This project is part of a larger body of research about sonic potentials of architectural materials.

Previously, Roxanne has worked with choreographers Manuela Lucia Tessi, Sarah Fdili Alaoui, and the Good Women Dance Collective as a sound artist, composer and designer. These collaborations explored the design of large-scale spatial instruments that allow dancers to generate sound with their bodies. She also works with Vancouver/ Berlin based drummer Ben Brown on the on-going collaboration Mutual Instruments for Movement and Sound, where she designs and makes original percussion instruments that facilitate an unorthodox vocabulary of movement.

Roxanne performs regularly as a singer and musician in the audio-visual project graftician. Roxanne also works as a set designer for film. In 2016, she worked on the feature films Okja and Power Rangers in Vancouver.

In 2015, Roxanne completed a Masters of Architecture at the University of British Columbia. Previously, she studied double bass in Edmonton completing a bachelor of Music at the University of Alberta in 2009.
