About Anoush

Persian born concert pianist, performer-composer and new media artist, Anoush Moazzeni enjoys a performing career that has, frequently, taken her around the world. Highlights of recent seasons have included visits to America, Europe and the Middle East. She has performed at several venues in New York City, Maine, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Paris, Lyon, Köln, Amsterdam, Rethymnon/Greece, Tehran and Esfahan/Iran.

After finishing her undergraduate studies in both piano performance and musicology, Ms. Moazzeni specialized her master’s degree in contemporary piano performance and she is currently undertaking her individualized doctoral studies in musical creation and new technologies.

Anoush Moazzeni has studied piano with Rapahael Minaskanian, Dilbar Hakimova, Svetlena Heganian, Arthuro Nieto-Dorantes, Maurice Laforest, Mitra Dabirian, Elena Bashekian and Farangis Mousavi in Iran, France and Canada. She has also attended various piano master classes and "Cycle de Perfectionnement" in piano performance at Conservatoire Nationale Supérieure de Lyon, École Nationale de Musique de Mantes en Yvelines(Paris), École Normale de Musique de Paris(Alfred Cortôt), Tehran University, University of Montreal and Laval University with Florence Boffard, Anton Kuerti, Jacques Drouin, Gottlieb Wallisch and Khachik Babyian. Alongside her performance sudies, Ms. Moazzeni studied composition and electroacoustic music with Aaron Liu-Rosenbaum(CA), Mark Lingk(GR) and Nader Mashayekhi(IR-FR) and followed different internships in Creative and Live Coding, Electroacoustic Music, Sound Engineering and Algorithmic audiovisual composition, Robotics for Artists Virtual and Augmented Reality, Procedural Audio and Sound Spatialization at Société des Arts Technologique in Montréal, IRCAM/Centre Pompidou in Paris, Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology in Mcgill University, La Chambre Blanche in Quebec City, FabLab in Brussel and Deutsch-Französisches Forum Junger Kunst in Germany.

Versatile recital programs encompass the contemporary and standard repertoires, as well as less familiar fare. She currently focuses her piano performance practice on the mixed music repertoire for Piano and Electronics, Augmented Piano, Prepared Piano and Disklavier & interactive audiovisual computer system as the development of her art consists of the interaction between artistic interpretation and scholarly reflection. Particular areas of her research-creation artistic practice include new strategies for interdisciplinary performance design, mixed music composition and performance, interactive musical technologies, interface design and robotics, extended techniques, unconventional instrumental performance practice and post-medium/hybrid musical works. She has been expanding her artistic boundaries as a researcher-creator within interdisciplinary arts by collaborating with artists from different fields and she has been recently selected by the international jury of Biennale of Contemporary Art of Florence to present her multimedia art works.

Ms. Moazzeni has premiered more than 30 pieces for piano solo and collaborative piano from contemporary composers around the world under call for scores and commissions. She has been constantly collaborating as jury member, pianist and performer-composerwith new music, creative music and digital arts organizations such as NonClassical in London, Fifteen Minutes of Fame and Vox Novus in New York City, TCML in Toronto, FestivalOFF in Quebec City, Improve Sound Festival in Maine and RETHinkArt digital Festival in Rethymnon. She also has been commissioned in 2014 as lecturer-performer of the Persian Music by the Artistic Heritage of Humanity(IPAC), the Interdisciplinary Observatory of Research-Creation of music (OIRCM) and the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec City.

Anoush Moazzeni has recorded as a solo pianist and accompanist in Canada and she has been awarded as the winner of the Concours de Disque de L'Ulaval in 2013, the semi-finalist of the Gerard Boivin Piano Competition in 2012 and the 4th place winner of the “Bourse en milieu de pratique BMP Innovation” of The Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC) In collaboration with the Musée de la civilisation de Québec (MCQ) in 2015.

Art Making Approach/Approche artistique

"I seek liberation from specialized compartments and definitions. Pursuing larger cultural questions, I have tried to remove my isolating disciplinary blinders.

Musical activity, as a process of music-making and decision-making activity, has some sociological and philosophical value, therefore, I put the emphasis on how I proceed to the aesthetic, which will express my thoughts.

In case of the live performance, Improvisation related to the memory and notation, time and space and collective participation, has provided considerable inputs into the development of my musical expression through this performance system.

Real time creation of the music belongs to a specific time and space in which (my performance), spontaneous decisions through my musical expression vary the event. The musical expression comes from the aesthetic and long life performance practice background of the performer, thus, my aesthetic and musical language as a performer change the event and the space spontaneously.

Mes principes

En tant que pianiste de concert et artiste multimédia, je cherche à communiquer par le biais de ma production artistique dans un contexte interdisciplinaire pour mettre en avant plan mon profil créatif et un corps distinctif de la musique en combinant virtuosité technique de la performance avec des modèles de composition innovants.

En combinant des pratiques de performance innovantes avec de nouveaux modèles de composition, je désire exploiter les différents mariages possibles entre la musique, les arts performants et les nouveaux médias et à en étudier l’incidence sur ma propre démarche de chercheur-créateur et compositeur-interprète à l’intérieur de la création d’une nouvelle scène de performance.

Les thèmes que je privilégie sont l’interaction entre la création musicale, la technologie et la recherche. Plus précisément, je souhaite concevoir des nouvelles stratégies pour des performances interdisciplinaires, des systèmes originaux d'improvisation, des technologies musicales interactives et des designs d’interface incluant de la robotique.
