Oliver Blank is a composer. He builds sound toys, creates public installations and composes symphonic cinematic music. Oliver’s sound toys and public installations empower residents to connect with sound and create surprising experiences that bring a sense of wonder back to their city.
Oliver can currently be found in New Orleans as part of the team at Civic Center. He is a graduate of Goldsmiths College’s Master of Music programme, and likes to call Helsinki home.
This INconversation is in partnership with We Are City [IMPORT], which is an initiative that brings in thinkers and creators of all kinds and introduces them to Indianapolis via short-term residencies. Join Oliver Blank as he kicks off his residency in Indianapolis through INconversation.
