Avant-garde Music & Multimedia in the Pacific Northwest

Roxanne Nesbitt
Designer, musician, and sound artist
Roxanne is a designer, musician, and sound artist based in Vancouver, Canada. She is interested in the convergence of sound, design, and motion.

Roxanne has worked with choreographers Manuela Lucia Tessi, Sarah Fdili Alaoui, and the Good Women Dance Collective as a sound artist, composer, and designer. These collaborations explored the design of large-scale spatial instruments that allow dancers to generate sound with their bodies. She also works with Vancouver/Berlin based drummer Ben Brown on the ongoing collaboration Mutual Insruments for Movement and Sound, where she designs and makes original percussion instruments that facilitate an unorthodox vocabulary of movement.

Roxanne performs regularly as a singer and musician in the audio-visual project graftician. Roxanne also works as a set designer for film. In 2016, she worked on the feature films Okja and Power Rangers in Vancouver.

In 2015, Roxanne completed a Masters of Architecture at the University of British Columbia. Previously she studied double bass in Edmonton, completing a Bachelor of Music at the University of Alberta in 2009.
