CARLA KIHLSTEDT is a founding member of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Tin Hat, 2 Foot Yard, Causing a Tiger, Minamo, and of course, the songwriting duo at the heart of Rabbit Rabbit Radio with Matthias Bossi.
She created a staged song cycle for seven musicians and an actress called Necessary Monsters with poet Rafael Osés and director Rinde Eckert, and has written for the ROVA Saxophone Quartet, and the Bang on a Can All-Stars. She is currently working on a new song cycle for NYC’s International Contemporary Ensemble based on dreams collected from the players and from the public. Last year, she joined the faculty of New England Conservatory’s Contemporary Improvisation Department.
She loves to make collages, some of which will inevitably make appearances on Rabbit Rabbit Radio. Her various musical projects and outpourings are cataloged on her web site: www.carlakihlstedt.com.
She and Matthias have a 2-year-old daughter named Tallulah who loves rabbits. All of the ones in their yard seem to be named Nicholas.
