Vanessa has received numerous commissions as a composer. Most recently, by Musikfonds for a compositional research grant focusing on aleatoric music and the idea of the conductor as an improvisation tool in creating live music.

Vanessa’s composition style brings a new visual aspect to contemporary  music; often including gestures and some form of choreography, and breaking the classical stillness of the musicians.

She is currently working for a new work for Toronto’s Tafelmusik Ensemble in Canada; Human Talking to be premiered in 2024.
