Carey Nutman

Residence: Houghton-le-Spring, UK

Carey Nutman was born in Hetton-le-Hole, County Durham, in the North East of England. Despite his love of music he opted, initially, for a scientific career, studying pharmacy at Sunderland School of Pharmacy, 1967 to 1970, obtaining a first class honours degree. During the next twenty years he worked as a pharmacist, at the same time singing in two amateur choirs and composing electronic music in his home studio. From 1990 to 1992 he studied composition (with Michael Clarke, Richard Steinitz, Margaret Lucy Wilkins, and others) at Huddersfield University, obtaining a Masters degree in 1992. Many of his works have been performed and broadcast in Europe, North America and Australia. In 1994 Carey Nutman founded the MPS Music and Video record label to promote computer, electroacoustic, and avant-garde music. Nutman no longer works as a pharmacist.
