Julia Mermelstein is a Toronto-based composer and educator, originally from Halifax. Her music deals with textures and subtle changes in timbre that reveal a sense of duality. Julia’s compositions focus on capturing moments and states of mind that people experience but might overlook due to today’s fast paced world. She has always had a strong fascination with music’s role in dance due to her long involvement and training in ballet. She’s curious about how music effects movement and the way they can interact. Julia’s compositions have been performed by Ensemble Arkea, Toy Piano Composers Ensemble, Quatuor Bozzini, Nostos Dance Collectives, Windermere String Quartet, DaCapo Chamber Choir, Quatrix, and Orchestre Symphonique de l’Isle. Julia received a B.F.A specializing in Music Composition from Concordia University in 2013.
