Arun Sood is a Scottish-Indian writer, musician and academic working across multiple forms.  He was born in Aberdeen to a West-Highland Mother and a Punjabi father, and has since lived in Glasgow, Amsterdam, DC, and now South Devon where he is Lecturer in English at the University of Plymouth.   


Arun’s critical and creative practice ranges from academic publications, fiction and poetry to ambient musical tapestries made up of field-recordings, accordion, chanter, piano, violin, vocals, and programmed drums and synths.  Broadly, his varied outputs often reflect themes of mixed-race heritage, diasporic identities, ancestry, language, and memory.
