Omar has been a part of the Electro-Acoustic Orchestra for two years. He completed an undergraduate honours project focused on resonance and materiality of sound and experimental approaches to musical instruments. He is beginning his Master’s in musicology in Fall 2021, and will work in the lab on projects at the intersection of experimental instrument creation and studies of non-western traditional instruments. Omar writes for Canadian Musician Magazine and also performs an indie-folk solo act as well as in indie-rock bands Mike Legere, Dante Matas, and Century Thief.
