Arran Poole is an experimental composer and sound artist.
Poole studied under the British composer Christopher Hobbs, as well as the classical pianist Julian Hellaby.
Recently, Arran was part of the production team responsible for the quirky short film, Wind, which won Encounter Film Festival’s 0117 Challenge, and was included in Shetland Art’s ‘Hansel of Film’ relay from Lerwick to Southampton.
His interests lie in the fields of twentieth-century avant-garde music, sample culture, soundscape studies, and musical instrument design. These influence his own creative output of resonant drone and noise music, as well as his work as a practitioner of the experimental musical instrument, the bow chime.
