Karlin Love is perpetually looking for surprises: ‘Ooh! That’s bigger/deeper/wider than I’d thought!’ for herself, for performers, and for audiences. She aims to gently extend and expand traditional sound worlds and provoke greater democracy in ensemble music-making. She has been commissioned by numerous Tasmanian and Australian performers, notably saxophonist Jabra Latham, Clarion214 clarinet quartet, lutenist Susan King, and the University of Tasmania Community Music Program. She is a fully-represented composer with the Australian Music Centre and published by Wirripang. In addition to composing, she is a teacher, community provocateur, curator and producer, and performer on Greenwood leather instruments, guitar, and clarinets. Over the years she has accumulated a few degrees (PhD, MA(hons), BMus, BA).
