About The Artists

Robin Rimbaud

Robin Rimbaud came to prominence through using found mobile phone conversations; and his fascination with trawling the hidden noise of the modern metropolis has continued to this day.

He has collaborated with artists from every imaginable genre: musicians Bryan Ferry, Radiohead and Laurie Anderson, The Royal Ballet and Merce Cunningham, Wayne McGregor and Random Dance companies.

Over twenty years Scanner has scored films, released albums ranging from ambient electronic music through to guitar focused post-punk with Colin Newman (from Wire) and toured the music of Joy Division with a full orchestra.

Joel Cadbury

Joel Cadbury’s musical roots start from his first band sOuth, signed to dance and breakbeat label Mo Wax. Since that time Joel has collaborated with artists from Beth Orton, through to being a key songwriter, producer and live guitarist for UNKLE.

Joel’s original scores include Jonathan Glazer’s cult gangster movie Sexy Beast and
Michael Winterbottom’s dark and brooding noir epic The Killer Inside Me .

Joel is currently composing the original score for the San-Francisco National Ballet, working with choreographer Wayne McGregor.

Zarina Rimbaud-Kadirbak

Zarina Rimbaud-Kadirbak was born in Amsterdam, raised first of all in Heerenveen, a town in the most northern province of the country, and finally in the medieval city of Heusden in the south of the Netherlands. She spent the largest part of her adult life in the vibrant city of Tilburg and moved to London in spring 2012.

Her arts blog Dutch Girl in London paints a vibrant picture of the arts scene in the UK, especially focusing on graffiti art, new music and dance in London. She brings an outsiders critical view , but with a wit and flair that retains her love for the arts throughout her writing. These qualities were reflected by the fact that Zarina was a recent finalist in the UK Blog Awards.
