About

Kammer Klang was a London-based live music series which ran from 2008-2019, presenting curated programmes of contemporary classical, experimental, improvised and electronic music.

Founded by Lucy Railton, it was later directed by Serge Vuille and Emily Moore and co-curated by Railton. Invaluable support was provided by a team including Dan Ehrlich, Dimitri Djuric, Ilme Vysniauskaite, Ilze Ikse, Jérémie Wenger, Juliet Fraser, Louis d’Heudières, Marie Faucher, Matthew Shlomowitz, Nefeli Skarmea, Ragnar Árni Ólafsson, Richard Simkins, Sam Mackay, Tom Rose and Zoë-Eve Rhinehart, as well as 2018-19 guest curators Taylor Le Melle and Jennifer Lucy Allan.

From its unlikely first home in a sports bar off Old Street to its eventual home at Cafe Oto, it explored both new music and new ways of presenting repertoire, connecting performers and creators from across genres and forms and encouraging them to innovate, collaborate and explore.

Each event explores both new music and new ways of presenting repertoire, connecting performers and creators from across genres and forms and encouraging them to innovate, collaborate and explore.
