HEATHER FRASCH, is a composer of acoustic and electroacoustic concert music, performer/composer, and creator of interactive sound installations and digital instruments. Through the creation of complex timbres, the usage of unstable notation systems, and electronics her work explores notions of fragility and stillness within an intermedia sonic arts practice. Influenced by the dis-embodiment of acousmatic music practices, she investigates the re-embodiment of sound and the intimacy between humans and their technological objects.

V., Initiative Neue Musik Berlin and Kulturförderung des Goethe-Instituts. She was Visiting Assistant Professor of Composition and Computer Technologies at The University of Virginia (2018-2020).
