Anna Friz

Anna Friz is a Canadian sound and radio artist currently based in Chicago. From the childhood fiction of "the little people in the radio" to documentary remixes of live political events, she creates dynamic, atmospheric works equally able to reflect upon public media culture or to reveal interior landscapes. She also works as a sound designer and composer for theatre, dance, and film.

Friz became actively involved in Canadian independent community radio in 1993, and consistently programmed shows at either CiTR (Vancouver), CKUT (Montréal), or CKLN (Toronto) until 2007, as well as initiating special programming events. She was programme director at CiTR from 1997-2000, where she curated 24 Hours of Radio Art in 1999 and 2000.

Since 1998 Friz has predominantly created self-reflexive radio works for international broadcast, installation or performance, where radio is the source, subject, and medium of the work. She has performed and exhibited works at festivals and venues across North America,  Europe, and in Mexico. Her radio art/works have been heard on independent and public airwaves in more than 15 countries.  Anna Friz is a FQRSC post-doctoral fellow at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the Sound Department, and a free103point9 transmission artist.
