Kammer Klang is a series of live music events at Cafe Oto in London, presenting curated programmes of contemporary classical, experimental, improvised and electronic music.
Founded in 2008 and run by Lucy Railton for four years, the series is now directed by Serge Vuille and Emily Moore and co-curated by Railton, in collaboration with Ben Freeney (PR), Dimitri Djuric, Marie Faucher, Louis d’Heudières, Richard Simkins, Nefeli Skarmea and Jérémie Wenger.
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.
Last seasons we were proud to present outstanding artists and composers including the London Sinfonietta, Miles Cooper Seaton, Liza Lim, Sam Salem, Mauricio Pauly, Ayan-ool Sam, 12 Ensemble, Aisha Orazbayeva, James Week, Alex Hills, EVOL, Brian Ferneyhough, Samantha Fernando, Kaija Saariaho , Christine Sun Kim, Cassandra Miller, Klara Lewis, Nik Colk Void, Phaedra Ensemble, Leo Chadburn, Christopher Redgate, Scenatet, Matt Rogers, David Helbich, Apartment House, Jacob Kirkegaard, EXAUDI, Plus-Minus, Jennifer Walshe, Asamisimasa, Juliet Fraser, Oliver Coates, Lawrence Lek, Jessie Marino, Distractfold, Oscilanz, John Wall and many more.

Last year’s successful membership scheme is back! We are a volunteer-run organisation and it’s important to us to keep our ticket prices affordable. But we stage ambitious performances, we bring highly regarded international artists and large ensembles to Cafe Oto for unique, one-off shows, and we insist on paying our artists a fair wage. So we appreciate your support very much – whether you decide to become a member or just come along for a show.
