Richard Kamerman will be leading a 17-hour performance at Panoply Performance Lab on June 17. Beginning promptly at 7:06 am, the performance will conclude at midnight. Please come check out this groundbreaking piece–drop by and hear part or all of this monumental work. Below is an in-depth interview with the artist.
Richard Kamerman has been breaking electronics and crashing computers while trying to coax interesting and unpredictable sounds out of them for over a decade. Occasionally, he has also presented himself as a more serious composer of re-performable written music. Keywords: amplification, magnification, obfuscation, systems design, game theory, patterns, human error, accident, failure. Although a firm believer in the axiom that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” he ceased collecting his instruments from piles of junk left on the curb several years ago, fearing he might bring home bedbugs. Recordings of his solo or collaborative works have been released by Erstwhile Records, Pilgrim Talk, Contour Editions, RRRecords, and Engraved Glass, among others. Kamerman has performed and/or his work has been otherwise presented throughout the United States as well as internationally in Canada, Germany, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and Chile. He also runs the small press music label Copy For Your Records.
