Some new music, old couches and dim lights… and the premiere of Sheer Hellish Miasma.

Kevin Drumm (b.1970, South Holland, Ill.) emerged from Chicago’s improvised music scene in the 1990s as a tabletop guitar player. In his early works, he made spare and detailed recordings, laying the instrument on its side and playing it with different objects, like magnets, paper clips and violin bows. Since 1991 his approach has expanded to include electroacoustic compositions and live electronic music made with laptop computers, pulse generators, effects pedals and synthesizers.

Earlier Lampo performances include a trio concert with Taku Sugimoto and Günter Müller in February 2002; a solo performance in December 1999, in a split bill with Ryoji Ikeda; and a September 1999 concert with Martin Tétreault and Jim O’Rourke.
