Dylan Sheridan

Dylan Sheridan is composer and artist based in Hobart. He began his formal studies at the Tasmanian Conservatorium of Music and completed his Masters degree at the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, USA. Also a visual artist, Dylan is interested in expanding the theatrical nature of concert music through the use of image, lighting, musical sculpture and unconventional use of space. His work are presented in a wide range of setting - from concert halls to living rooms, car washes, art galleries, gunpowder magazines, and online - in the U.S.A, Europe and Australia, and at events such as MusicX (Switzerland), Dark MOFO, MONA FOMA, and Next Wave Festival. In 2014 he was nominated for a Green Room award for his sound theatre work Terminal. In 2015 he will undertake residencies at the Kyoto Arts Centre and Mole Creek Caves where he will develop a new work for planetarium.
