CAROLINE PARK is a composer, musician, and artist working within the minimum in experimental electronic music. Her 2015 digital release "less than human" was called "transportive ... a hissing, humid approximation of summer and wet earth to surround" (The Wire) and "luminous and droning ... best experienced in full body" (Disquiet).

As a composer-performer, Caroline collaborates frequently with Asha Tamirisa in duo situations, performs as 1/4 of the electro-improv quartet BUMPR (Peter Bussigel, Stephan Moore, Tim Rovinelli), and performs as 1/3 of a trio with Beth McDonald and Matt Samolis. Caroline has shared the stage with Andrea Pensado, Laura Cetilia, Vicky Chow, Bonnie Jones, Suzanne Thorpe, Mem1, Steve Roden, a canary torsi, Luke Moldof, Forrest Larson, Vic Rawlings, Lyn Goeringer, Ed Osborn, Betsey Biggs, Jim Moses, Callithumpian Consort, Stephen Drury, Yukiko Takagi, Los Angeles Children's Chorus, R We Who R We, Evidence, Dollshot, and Arnold Dreyblatt. Performances, both solo and collaborative, have occurred at AS220, Machines With Magnets, RISD Museum, Granoff Center for the Creative Arts, Middle Oak Parking Garage, Jordan Hall, Goethe-Institut Boston, Boston Center for the Arts, Cafe Fixe, Third Life Studio, Studio Soto, Spectrum, Silent Barn, New Museum, The Invisible Dog, the Stone, 295 Douglass, 16 Beaver, ISSUE Project Room, Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, and the Central Conservatory of Music, in concerts presented/curated by OPENSIGNAL, SEAMUS, CTRL+ALT+REPEAT, R.K. Projects, Non-Event, SICPP, Opensound, Boston CyberArts, Pauline Oliveros, ((audience)), Saint Louis Symphony, and Musicacoustica Beijing.

A Los Angeles native, Caroline received B.M. and M.M. degrees in composition at the New England Conservatory and is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Multimedia and Electronic Music Experiments at Brown University (MEME@Brown). Her CD "OCTAVLUV" was called "glowing" and "beautiful" (The Sound Projector), and her digital release "field" was described as music existing "in an abstract zone, where space bends and algorithms are allowed bountiful time to work their fractal, generative beauty" (Disquiet). Solo discography can be found on Private Chronology, Bathetic Records, Visceral Media Records, Pure Potentiality Records, Absence of Wax, and Pan y Rosas Discos. Caroline is a founding member of OPENSIGNAL, a group of artists concerned with the state of gender and race within electronic and computer-based art practices. She lives and works in Providence, RI.
