About Current Residents

Soraya Perry
Music
July / August 2021

Soraya Perry is an artist, filmmaker and musician in constant flux. She believes every medium—especially music—is a conduit to other worlds, and in her work she tries to conjure their colorful, alien pictures. She has been awarded residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Worcester’s Collective-A-Go-Go and the Sitka Center. She has spent the past year working on “Bunker Funk,” a genre-defying album about life in quarantine, and “Life in A Day 2020,” a feature documentary that premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January. The last time she was a Sitka resident, she focused on understanding her artistic process, expanding her concept of “genre” and using music as medicine. This time, she hopes to learn more about collaboration, soundbeds and audio production.
