Sarah Davachi

As a composer of electronic and electroacoustic music, Davachi engages in practices of analog and modular synthesis and psychoacoustic manipulations. Her compositions focus on the experience of enveloped sonic dwelling, often utilizing extended durations, gradual transformations in texture, and simple harmonic structures that emphasize variations in overtone complexity and natural phasing patterns. Davachi holds an MFA in electronic music from Mills College, and, since 2007, has worked for the National Music Centre in Canada as an interpreter and archivist of their collection of electronic and acoustic keyboard instruments. Her writings on experimental music have been presented and published within Canada, the US, and the UK, and she has held artist residencies at The Banff Centre for the Arts, STEIM, WORM (Rotterdam), and EMS (Stockholm). Her music has been presented at New Forms Festival, the San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, Sled Island, send+receive, and Sound of Stockholm. Davachi currently resides in Vancouver, Canada.
