Dylan Sheridan is a multi-disciplinary Tasmanian artist and composer who is forging distinctive new territory in experimental music and performance. His work represents an intricate convergence of sound, performance, audience and adaptive technologies – a composition of elements that often exists on the boundaries of visual, sound and performed art.
His works typically incorporate custom built instruments, electronics, objects and software, and are presented in increasingly unconventional forms and settings – from concert halls and galleries to gunpowder magazines and car washes.
He has three times been nominated for a Green Room Award, receiving the award for Best Experimental Sound Performance for ‘Crush’, performed in a carwash for the Festival of Live Art in Melbourne in 2017.
Dylan holds a Bachelor of Music and Arts from the University of Tasmania and a Master of Music from the College Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, USA, where he studied under scholarship between 2009 – 2011. Dylan is currently Associate Artist at Terrapin.
