Jen Reimer is a sound artist and performer based in Montréal known for creating site-specific performances in resonant urban locations: abandoned warehouses, viaducts, underground tunnels and metro stations. Her work in collaboration with Max Stein (Montréal Sound Map) combines horn, ambient sound, field recordings and the inherent sonic environment to create an immersive experience in the space itself. In 2012 they released a 10″ record of their performance in the St-Urbain underpass in Montréal.
Jen received a Bachelor of Music in composition and performance from the University of Alberta and a Graduate Diploma in performance from Concordia University. In 2008 and 2009 she was an Artist in Residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts.
She has toured internationally and performed in various festivals including Suoni per Il Popolo, HTMlles, Montréal Highlights Festival, 2nd Annual Performance Art Festival (GR) and Nuit Sonores (FR). She plays drums in UN with Kara Keith. They have performed in various festivals including Pop Montréal, SXSW, NXNE & Sled Island.
