Skagfield

Karlotta Skagfield is a sound designer and vocalist from Iceland.
Karlotta grew up watching both of her parents, a painter and a sculptor, explore new grounds and setting up various art exhibitions around the globe.
Being born at the heart of this unique world, it was inevitable should immerse herself into the art scene

From a very young age, she was very sensitive to sounds, without knowing why, but emotions, sounds and colours intertwined all together.
At times it could be difficult to be in certain places where some frequencies would have physical effects.
At an older age, Karlotta started to explore this mystery and gain an understanding of the effects of sounds to human emotions:

‘’Why would a certain sound make you feel the way you would?‘’

She took her earlier career steps at the Fine Arts School in Reykjavík where her focus shifted to music, entering ‘’Reykjavík Academy of Vocal Arts’’ where the young artist studied opera and composition over the span of 6 years, including performances on stage and exhibitions.
Following those years, Karlotta was set to take her first international steps in London and further explore the classical world of music.

Once in London, Karlotta quickly discovered that she had passion for a more extensive take on music, shifting her focus into a path of more creation rather than performance.
Joining the ever-multicultural scene in the school of British and Irish Modern Music Institute she started doing work as sound designer, creating sounds and foley for films, documentaries and TV.
Today she combines her love for sound design, classical composition with her former studies to create audio visuals.

Combining dramatic visuals of Icelandic landscape that she associates with Icelandic nature sounds, she tries to replicate the feeling she experiences.
Her work intends to create a bridge between music and the visual so that the feelings and emotions of one are transferred to the other. It is intended to make the music surround you, creating overwhelming emotions and giving the audience a little peek into her mind
