Megumi Masaki: Hearing Ice

Megumi Masaki is a pianist, multimedia, and interdisciplinary performing artist. For over thirty years, she has established an international reputation as a leading interpreter of Canadian and new music, and as an innovator that reimagines the performer, the piano and the performance space. Her artistry explores new models of interaction and integration
of sound, image, text, and movement in multimedia works through new technologies.

Her work responds to Truth and Reconciliation calls to action, and examines how human rights and environmental issues can be communicated through music and multimedia performances to create narratives that speak truth to power. Her work fosters dialogue, promotes action, and positive change to seek more inclusive, sustainable and just societies across all communities and borders.
