Artists Biographies: Carousel is a collective of four musicians interested in exploring the possibilities of sound and music in new and imaginative ways. Formed after a commission from the SoundFjord sound-art gallery to create a performance using an ‘object-based score’, we have continued to explore this area of performance and to extend it into collaborations and contexts that force us to explore sound materials in a new way. Continuing to focus on object-based sound sources and home-made instruments combined with traditional instruments, we aim to collaborate with artists from as wide a variety of backgrounds and disciplines as possible and to explore the core materials of music from varied perspectives and in many different contexts. Carousel is Noura Sanatian, Charlie Sdrausig, Benedict Taylor and Tim Yates.
