Nathan Marsh is a sound artist, educator and performer based in Vancouver primarily concerned with the concepts of experience and “objecthood” in music. He emphasizes collaboration and physical involvement in the creation of his works, intending to draw people into the physicality of music as a lived experience rather than as a predominantly auditory phenomenon. Combining elements of creation, performance and education are key to structuring Nathan’s artistic work.
Nathan holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Music Composition from Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts, and is currently pursuing his Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia. As an educator, Nathan has worked as an Artist Mentor in Burnaby North Secondary School’s Music and Technology Program and King George Secondary’s Visual Art program in an initiative placing artists in local classrooms, co-founded by the Western Front Society.
