Sarah Belle Reid

Sarah Belle Reid is a Canadian performer-composer, specializing in trumpet and electronics, modular synthesis, and alternate forms of graphical notation for composition and improvisation. She is a co-developer of the Minimally Invasive Gesture Sensing Interface (MIGSI) for trumpet: an open-source, wireless interface that captures performance data and provides real-time extended sonic and visual control for improvisation. Reid’s work explores themes of time, feedback, and memory both in sound and physical performance, as well as the integration of electronics, hybrid/new instruments, and found objects.
