Anne received a Paul D Fleck writer fellowship at Banff Centre for Art and Creativity, while faculty in the Creative Gesture Collective Composition Lab 2017-2019. A Chalmers Fellow, Anne explores the geopoetics of shorelines, walking and listening as field recording. The indigenous relationship to water is an influence, and surface wave patterns the source of her composition. Recently Anne has been teaching internationally through one on one meetings online; and processing audiovisual field recordings to create Distance Listening Walks. A recent premier is an audio visual work ‘Grass’ at the IF2021 festival. Anne regards listening and collective creative expression as an opportunity for individual sensory care, relationship to the more than human sound field; and awareness of difference toward harmonious balance.
