Introduction
Areas of Interest: Borkowski’s research uses theories of practice and learning retention from sport science and tests their relevance in musical settings. Implications include minimising risk of overuse injuries,increasing body awareness and improving self-efficacy in performance. Composer/Performer Jennifer Borkowski creates highly dissonant yet soothing textures using flute and electronics. She focuses on expanding new music’s circle of listeners through imaginative programming.
