Joseph Sims

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Joseph Sims is a composer and musician born in London (Ontario) and is currently based in Montréal. His work acts as an amalgamation of sonic styles, frequently exploring the relationships between concrete and electronic sources. With roots in folk music, his compositional approach remains grounded in intuition and narrative — and continually explores new sonic pallets as a means of expression. Multi-channel, fixed-medium composition is his primary focus, but a love for visual media is expressed through frequent collaboration with animators and film makers. He is currently finishing his bachelor’s in Electroacoustic Studies at Concordia University and received the Marguerita Award in Electroacoustic Studies in 2020.
