Jay Lind

Residence: Vancouver, Canada

Jay Lind is currently a graduate student at Simon Fraser University where he is enrolled in a Masters of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies at the School for Contemporary Arts. He completed a BA (Music/Philosophy) at the University of Alberta in 1995 and studied composition with Howard Bashaw and electroacoustic music with Garth Hobden. Jay does not believe in the boundaries of music set forth by historical convention and corporate campaigns. Rather, he prefers to see music as one branch of the arts unto itself in a syncretic and symbiotic relationship to everything else in the universe. Currently studying under the tutelage of Martin Gotfrit and Owen Underhill, Jay is exploring issues of sound design in acoustic and electroacoustic compositional media.
