    Vanissa Law is currently working as a Visiting Scholar at Queen’s University Belfast on a project funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. The sound art performance project will reflect on the dining culture of her homeland, and will be performed at SARC, QUB under the mentorship of Professor Pedro Rebelo.

    Classically trained in her early years, Vanissa steered her focus towards electroacoustic music composition whilst studying for her master’s degree at Ball State University in the United States. Her doctoral research was on the use of gestures in electroacoustic music, in particular everyday gestures used by musicians and non-musicians alike, which Vanissa manages to incorporate in some of her works by translating gestures into sound and images.
