Kabir Carter Music/Sound
Kabir Carter has physically interrogated and spatially expanded the acoustic and durational limits of performing with vocal microphones, worked as an anti-barista at the Partisan café in Bergen, helped develop new designs for underwater Ambisonic microphone arrays, participated in the realization of presentations of Maryanne Amacher’s archives as part of the collective Supreme Connections, and installed temporary sound works in a variety of indoor and outdoor locations in several cities. His interests include architectural acoustics, the transmission of sound across medium boundaries, and the affective potentialities of sound-in-space. Recent exhibitions and performances include: Bergen Assembly, The Drawing Center, HKW – Haus der Kulturender Welt, ISSUE Project Room, Museet for Samtidskunst, Nokia BellLabs, and Stedelijk Museum. Carter has been a Braunschweig Projects Fellow at Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig, a Danish Arts Council DIVA Programme awardee, and an artist-in-residence at Aalto University’s Department of Signal Processing and Acoustics. He holds an MFA from Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College.
