Residence: Montréal, Canada

James Player is a composer and musician originally from Victoria and is now based in Montréal. He has worked as a touring and session musician, playing with rock bands through Canada, the USA and Europe. He is currently studying electroacoustics at Concordia University. His work is centred around improvisational playing and spontaneous composition, with a shifting focus from pitch-centric music to more textural and noise-forward sound. Predominantly a guitarist, Player has recently been expanding his compositional palette, incorporating found objects and prepared piano into the sonic fold.
