For many years, Waterman has been a familiar and central figure on the Canadian music scene. She brings a distinguished record of research and performance practice to the new chair, touching on diverse areas such as contemporary composition, creative improvisation, acoustic ecology and music and disability.
“The common thread in my research program is the collaborative exploration of difference and inclusion in music; the context for all my research projects is the complex social and cultural matrix that is Canada,” said Waterman.
Building from this emphasis on inclusion and locality, a major initiative of the Kallmann Chair will be the creation of a research centre for music in Canada, one which facilitates multiple forms of scholarship, performance and community engagement.
“I’m thrilled to be working with the talented faculty and students at Carleton. What makes this program distinctive is that it already has a significant focus on music and culture in Canada – including Indigenous, intercultural, popular and art musics. It has a long tradition of public engagement and this is very important to me as I plan to work collaboratively with musical communities in Ottawa and across Canada.”
