About Kate:
Kate Carr has been investigating the intersections between sound, place, and emotionality both as an artist and a curator since 2010. During this time, she has ventured from tiny fishing villages in northern Iceland, explored the flooded banks of the Seine in a nuclear power plant town, and recorded wildlife in South Africa and in the wetlands of southern Mexico.

Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wire, Pitchfork, Fact Magazine, The Quietus, and The Guardian. It has also been played on radio stations ranging from various channels of the BBC, to independent stations in Estonia. Her music can be found on the labels Helen Scarsdale (US), Rivertones (UK), Soft (France) 3Leaves (Hungary) Galaverna (Italy) as well as on her own label, Flaming Pines.

Recently, she has been doing more live work, with gigs at London’s Cafe Oto, Riga’s White Night’s festival, the Bello Bar in Dublin, and even a show performed from the deck of a restored herring trawler in Siglufjordur in Northern Iceland. Carr is Australian, and lives in London.
