Doreen Girard is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist working with sound, installation, and expanded cinema, and was a cofounder of the Negative Space and Bent Light artist collectives. She performs solo, and with the electro-acoustic piano duo Burden, as well as in a number of experimental and minimal sludge projects. Girard’s approach focuses on experimentation of the resonant and refractive properties of glass, wood, string and metal, aiming to activate the participant’s awareness of their perceptual field.
Her interests include early music, funereal doom, trauma theory, and the physics of sound and light. She has performed and presented work throughout North America.
