I can be booked for performances, commissioned works, installations, workshops and lectures via the contact page.
My creative practice is centred on articulating the relationship between people and place through sound.
Drawing on field recording, sonic mapping and sonic transects my practice aims to examine the ways we shape and are shaped by the sounds of our natural and built worlds.
I am particularly interested in processes of de-population, decay and renewal, lost sounds, music in public spaces and the role of the aural in storytelling and memory.
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, 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 Guardian Australia. It has also been played on the radio on stations ranging from various channels of the BBC, to independent stations in Estonia.
Carr regularly performs throughout the UK and Europe, with recent performances taking place at the Tate Modern, Whitechapel Gallery, Cafe Oto, Instants Chavires (Paris) and AB Salon (Brussels).
Her music can be found on the labels Helen Scarsdale (US), Hasana Editions (Indonesia), Rivertones (UK), Soft (France) Longform Editions (Australia) Galaverna (Italy) as well as on her own label Flaming Pines.
2019 commissions include: New compositional work for BBC Radio 3 and Radiophrenia Festival, Glasgow, as well as the ACE-funded installations Under Construction, TACO Gallery and Ascending composition No 1 for Air Matters, Waterman's Gallery.
Carr is Australian, and lives in London.
