Terri Hron is a musician, a performer and a multimedia artist.

Terri studied musicology and art history at the University of Alberta, historical and contemporary performance at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and electroacoustic composition at the Université de Montréal.
Her research focuses on collaborative practice and scoring in multimedia performance art.
She was a Visiting Scholar at Wesleyan University before taking her current position as Executive Director of the Canadian New Music Network, where she has developed programs focusing on equity, pluralism and accessibility.
Currently my work explores belonging, to places, people and scores. Working with recordings–always audio and sometimes video–of the people I am working with and specific sonic environments, I am interested in how voices, signatures and traces travel and cross my path. I read and write scores to connect to traditions of inviting personal participation and listening attentively to the environment.
My works often involve collecting and adapting materials intuitively in different iterations that are variously performative and/or contemplative. These materials include recordings, found objects, historical and traditional repertoire, texts, scores, performance practices, instruments. Other artists participate in the creation of these materials and works. I explore different kinds of scoring from a holistic perspective, inspired by researching non-eurocentric transmission practices and practitioners.
I also study and advocate for the work of other artists, people and beings by designing and producing knowledge-sharing and dissemination events and resources.
