The sounds of the Wetlands: a musical exploration with Karlin Love

Museum at Inveresk

Join us for an extraordinary sound exploration within the Wetlands exhibition at the Museum at Inveresk, as composer and musician Karlin Love leads us through the different ecosystems of the wetlands.

Water, mud, insects, birds, animals and humans create a multilayered sound experience for those who enter the wetlands. Karlin will guide you through those sounds, and share stories about wetlands' creatures.

Karlin will respond to the continuous soundscape with musical instruments and may invite you to join in to experience becoming one with the ecosystems.

Ticketed event - Places very limited for 2 time slots. All ages welcome.


Karlin Love (B.A., B.Mus., M.A., PhD) is a US-born composer and performer living in Tasmania. She moved to Australia in 1989 as a woodwind lecturer at the University of Tasmania in Launceston. She taught clarinet, saxophone, theory, composition and improvisation until 1997, and taught music education through to 2010.

She now works on research projects investigating advanced composition and performance teaching and learning, and is a freelance performer, composer, curator, and teacher. Karlin aims to gently extend and expand traditional sound worlds and provoke greater democracy in music-making. She has created and performed works for many festivals and series, and recorded by the Clarity clarinet quartet and The Chordwainers leather sculpture ensemble.
