Short Bio

Taylor Nuttall trained as a visual artist and has an early exhibition career with artworks featuring painting, print, sculpture, photography and installation. In the late 80’s and early 90’s he began to explore the potential of creativity using computer technologies. As well as exhibiting these works in traditional gallery spaces this led to a number of pieces being designed to be experienced online as virtual artworks. These virtual artworks also began to explore the use of sound. After completing a residency and commission for the arts organisation Folly in Lancaster as part of the Digital Arts Festival in 2000, Taylor became Artistic Director and CEO for Folly and a founding director of AND Festival, putting his own creative activity on hold until more recently. Taylor is now working with sound, drawing upon composition and musical skills he learned from playing piano and classical guitar as well as re-learning more robustly about sound design, composition and music theory.
