Jennifer Balabanov

Residence: Canada

The composing career of Jennifer Balabanov (b 1975, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), probably got started when she, as a small child, took delight in plinking out small melodies at the piano. As a teenager, she moved on to songwriting. After graduating from high school, her continuing interest in music led her to study classical music at Douglas College (New Westminster, BC). From there, she decided to pursue her interest in composing at Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC) where she was also able to develop her fascination with electronic sound. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from SFU in June 2003 and is now an independent composer.
