• Show Bio for Caroline Kraabel
"Caroline Kraabel (born 1961 in Torrance, California) is a London-based American composer, improviser and saxophonist. She is known for her research into the implications of electricity related to recording, synthesis and amplification.
After living in Seattle, Kraabel moved to London while in her teenage years, at the end of the punk era. There she took up the saxophone and became active in London's improvised music scene, eventually developing a style based on the physicality of the instrument, extended techniques and acoustics. She has performed solo and collaborated with John Edwards, Veryan Weston, Charlotte Hug, Maggie Nicols, Phil Hargreaves, and the London Improvisors Orchestra among others. She has also organized and conducted pieces for Mass Producers-a 20-piece, all-female saxophone/voice orchestra and for Saxophone Experimentals in Space-a 55-piece group of young saxophonists, as well as with her two children during walks through the streets of London.
Recordings include Transitions with Maggie Nichols and Charlotte Hug, Five Shadows with Veryan Weston, Performances for Large Saxophone Ensemble 1 and 2 and Performances for Large Saxophone Ensemble 3 and 4 with Mass Producers and a solo work Now We Are One Two.
Caroline Kraabel has been hosting a weekly radio show on London's Resonance FM and is the editor for the London Musicians Collective's magazine Resonance."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caroline_Kraabel)
