Bedtime stories with a bite

Tamsin Dearnley is a sound designer, professional lever harpist, and award-winning composer and arranger.

A fascination with music and a master's degree in composition led naturally to an increasing fascination with sound itself - her childhood penchant for making 'horrid music' (turning on every sound-emitting device in the house at once and 'mixing' with the volume controls), as well as trying to coax out as many different types of sound as possible from a set of pan lids, clearly had some use after all.

She now divides her time between performing, teaching, composing, and creating weird and wonderful sound effects for museum installations and indie game designers.

And drinking tea.
