Percussionist Barah Héon-Morissette is active in the contemporary music and visual arts scenes. Gifted with great versatility, as much by her ’orchestra’ of percussion instruments and constantly expanding repertoire of new works as by the diversity of artistic projects she participates in, Héon-Morissette is a force to take note of in musical and artistic creation.
Co-founder of ensemble In Extensio, she is interested in the communication and relationship between performer and the audience in contemporary music. Her dynamic and poetic playing is nourished by her activities in concert halls and visual arts expositions.
Since January 2010, Barah Heon-Morissette began doctoral research at the University of Montréal and she is a fellow of the Fonds québécois de la recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC). This led her to develop a gestural language on a new digital instrument.
