Sulyen Caradon founded the Severnside Composers Alliance and served as Chairman until 2009. He was born in Gravesend in 1942, of Cornish extraction. His mother, Margaret, was a piano student at the Royal Academy of Music before the war. After a childhood of piano lessons and singing in choirs, he took up the clarinet at Ardingly College, from where he proceeded to the Guildhall School of Music to study composition with Peter Wishart, and later, Michael Bowles at the Birmingham School of Music. He played in Cornelius Cardew's SCRATCH ORCHESTRA in London during the sixties, and, more recently, co-ordinated the South-West Region of COMA (Contemporary Music for Amateurs) from 1993-98. He plays clarinet in his professional quintet, SYLFANOME, and conducts the amateur, ZEPHYRIAN WOODWIND ORCHESTRA. Having a strong interest in ecology, he stood as Green Party candidate for North Somerset in the 1979 General Election, and has continued involvement with the local group of Friends of the Earth.
