Exploring sonic realities. Composer of electronic music, chant, soundscape music, art song, improvisation, piano music and string quartets.

Susan is a member of the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology, the Canadian Electroacoustic Community, the Centre for New Zealand Music, and the Melbourne Composers League.


The Audio Birth Project is based on interviews with Susan’s sisters and mother on the process of labour and birth. The suite of four works explores the terrain of labour and birth from three different perspectives. The works contain spoken voice recordings, instruments – cello, violin and piano – soundscapes and a large variety of electroacoustic techniques including granular synthesis.

The Audio Birth Project is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts and released by earsay.
