Dave Riedstra

Biography: 

Dave Riedstra is a Canadian composer of experimental Music. His recent work marks the collaboration between performer, composer, and listener in the sharing of ambiguously delimited moments, spaces, and vibrations. Playing on these agents’ variously refined or brusque capacities for signification, these experiences are harlequins of networked connectivity through which Riedstra hopes to bring into view the need for sensitivity and craft in all areas of life.
In addition to this practice, Riedstra performs as a upright and electric bassist. He currently performs for the Victoria Composers Collective and the Swinging Pendulums, and has played and recorded in a variety of classical, jazz, folk, and free improvisation settings across Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. When not working with manipulations of vibrations, Riedstra fills his eyes with books and JavaScript.
