my music

expressing humanity via technology

“Caro C creates an expressive and intuitive blend of electronics, vocals, piano and strings"

I only started making music thanks to being laid up whilst living in a double decker bus in the late 1990’s. I have now produced 3 albums, performed across Europe and enjoy international radio play.

My fourth album “Electric Mountain” is on its way with support from Help Musicians UK’s Do It Differently Fund. I am falling in love with the possibilities of electronic sound all over again, meticulously crafting an immersive sound world with my palette of voice, found sounds, piano, electronics and lithophone (like a xylophone but made of slate, see the mountain link?!).

I have performed at most of the cultural hotspots in Manchester such as The Bridgewater Hall, Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester Art Gallery, Band on the Wall, Fuel Bar and Anthony Burgess Foundation. I have also performed at The Royal Institute (of Science) in London and a couple of bigger festivals like Blue Dot and Festival Number 6.

There’s a fire in this belly as I explore the wonder and wounds of being on this human journey. There’s also a fierce love of the natural world. I love being IN the sound, crafting adventurous new music for the head, heart and haunches.

 

“Heartmind Preylude” is the opening track to my last album, “Everything Gives to Something Else” (2016).

Listen out for the found sounds of an ice cube clinking in a glass and the lovely sizzle of a hot frying pan under cold water!

For this track, I set myself the challenge of expressing myself non-verbally so the only lyrics are “you’ve found your pearl, unfurl.”

Piano and violin recorded at 80 Hertz Studio, MCR; violin by Kate Moran; video by Andrea Pazos.
