“One of Canada’s leading flutists in looping and live scoring for film. Her new album, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN, is a breath of fresh air. MacPhail’s passion and skill on the flute is obvious; She inspires the listener with uplifting melodies and dance-inducing grooves. MacPhail is forging new territory for musicians everywhere.” - Amanda Taylor (The Flute Examiner)
Innovative multi-instrumentalist wins MusicNL Female Artist of the Year in a world of singer-songwriters. A classically trained flutist, Rozalind MacPhail fled the boundaries of classical music to create unique fabrics of sound, blending flute, voice, omnichord, field recordings and electronics, and has created music for film and live performance as well as releasing several albums of original work. MacPhail explores new ways to combine image and sound, in works that speak honestly of place, person and the human experience.
Rozalind grew up in Canada on a small group of islands nestled in the harbour of Toronto, Ontario called Toronto Island. She has lived in many parts of Canada but it was the artistically vibrant city of St. John’s, Newfoundland that stole her heart.
Following years of classical music performance training at the Etobicoke School of the Arts, University of Toronto and University of Ottawa, she has pursued her interest in a wide range of musical genres, while performing as guest flutist with other artists, including Yo La Tengo, Lou Barlow, Constantines, Great Lake Swimmers, Elliott Brood and Pick a Piper.
In 2014, HEAD FIRST, MacPhail’s collaborative audio-visual project was released at the Banff Centre and also was co-presented with St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival at St. John’s LSPU Hall. This project represents seven years of work curating and collaborating with musicians and filmmakers from across Canada. The US premier of HEAD FIRST took place in North Carolina at the 20th Annual Cucalorus Film Festival. HEAD FIRST was nominated for an ECMA and a MusicNL Award.
MacPhail recently collaborated with Canadian film director, Ingrid Veninger, improvising a live score of original music for her award-winning feature film, HE HATED PIGEONS which has screened at film festivals worldwide.
MacPhail’s newest audio-visual project, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN premiered at Gros Morne Summer Music. The US premier of FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN took place at the Cucalorus Film Festival in Wilmington, North Carolina last November. MacPhail’s original soundtrack was nominated for MusicNL’s Instrumental Recording of the Year.
