Sapphire Haze is a composer-performer duo residing on unceded Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Səl̓ílwətaʔ and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm land (Vancouver, Canada). With Cindy Kao on violin and Aysha Dulong on electronics, the duo utilizes sound-to-colour synaesthesia as a compositional tool. They work in a hybridized model, and aim to blur the distinction between acoustic and electronic sound. Sapphire Haze explores how sound can embody lived experiences and can be utilized to express oneself. As a duo, their work has been presented at SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts, Vines Art Festival, Modulus Festival, Gateway Theatre, The Fox Cabaret, Firehall Arts Centre, and Lobe Studio. They were the featured artist for Music on Main’s 2021/2022 Emerge on Main program, and made their international debut at the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival in June 2022. Recently, they sound designed with rice & beans theatre, and collaborated with Clala Project. Currently, they are devising an original interdisciplinary work with choreographer and dancer Natalia Martineau about where colonial imposition lives in our bodies.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.

We acknowledge the generous support of our partners and funders:
