Roy Carroll is a musician and composer, based in Berlin. His work encompasses improvisation, composition, music / choreographic collaboration and practical / experimental research, with porous borders in between. He works primarily with electro-acoustic media; - diverse objects and materials interacting through amplification and signal processing to create multi-layered forms, orbiting around the kinetic nature of the transformation of electrical audio signals into disturbed air. 

Roy has been commissioned by groups such as Icebreaker, Dublin Guitar Quartet, Vox21 and The Whispering Gallery. He is one half of The Instrument with choreographer Maya M Carroll, with whom he has created over 20 works for the stage.
