Soressa Gardner is a vocalist, improviser, songwriter and electronic music composer who strives to expose the soul of any given project. She holds a music degree and diploma in classical voice from Vancouver Community College. Her collaborations with writers seek out darkness and humour, and her improvisation skills and sense of movement bring ease and grace to her collaborations with dancers.

Soressa’s collaborations with Canadian authors include Dennis E. Bolen and Evie Christie. In movement and voice, she has worked with Mascall Dance, Voxy Vocal Lab (with singers Kate Hammett-Vaughan and Carol Sawyer), Bugs Black Blood (under the direction of Coat Cooke) and others. Her compositions have been showcased at Video Inn’s Signal and Noise Festival, the Western Front, and on independent radio. She has studied with composer Peter Hannan, extended technique vocalists Richard Armstrong, Katherine Duncanson and DB Boyco, and classical vocalist Marisa Gaetanne.
