jef chippewa is a composer, new music notation specialist, arts administrator and a fantastic cook. Sound objects and funky performance techniques play an important role in his work, while theatricality and gestural choreography are integral to the concert-theatre-fluxus work cabinet de curiosités (2015), the live-notated something like this but not this and not that either (2017) and the single-upbow string trio al tallone (2018). He is currently collaborating on an ambitious project with improvising saxophonist Yves Charuest that explores the encounter between composed music and free improvisation. His work has been presented in traditional concert venues, art galleries, festivals and trains by ensembles such as LUX:NM, CrossingLines and ensemble recherche. In 1999, chippewa founded shirling & neueweise, a company specialized in New Music notation, and he has led seminars internationally on “New Music Notation: Score design, function and role”. Since 2005, he is Administrative co-Director of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC), Canada’s national association for electroacoustic practices, and Coordinating Editor of their electronic journal, eContact!
