Podcast - Caroline Kraabel

Podcast - Caroline Kraabel

This is a conversation with Caroline Kraabel who grew up in Seattle USA, and came to London as a teenager. She discovered saxophone and expressed her love for it via indie music and street performance.
I talked to Caroline about about how she began to play her instrument, her inspirations, collaborations and her experiences of the experimental music scene in London.
“it’s possible for somebody like me….in a state of complete ignorance about music to make sounds and put them together in a way that worked for me… & other people seemed to think it worked too..…”
