    Profile

    Sasha Kaoru Zamler-Carhart (they/them) is a singer, writer, medievalist, and composer/designer. They teach music history at Mannes and occasionally speculative design at Parsons.

    Their artisic practice is research-based and reversible like an air conditioner. Sometimes it's forensic and pointed at dissecting an existing object: this is their work as a medievalist and music historian. Sometimes it's toggled to output and is used to make a design object: this is their work as a composer, designer, and writer. Their research interests include musical repertoires and/as multimedia design, trans(ient) identities, time travel, linguistics (especially pidgins and creoles), Africa and the African diaspora, textiles, intersectional experiences of gender, Byzantine studies.

    They are the lead singer of the improv band Zamler-Carhart Rauh Greenberg.

    Before joining The New School they led the Medieval Music program at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague, The Netherlands, and directed The Ascoli Ensemble, a vocal ensemble for medieval polyphony. They also used to be a tax lawyer.
