About

Kammer Klang was a London-based live music series which ran from 2008-2019, presenting 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 DjuricIlme VysniauskaiteIlze IkseJérémie WengerJuliet FraserLouis d’Heudières, Marie Faucher, Matthew ShlomowitzNefeli SkarmeaRagnar Árni ÓlafssonRichard SimkinsSam MackayTom Rose and Zoë-Eve Rhinehart, as well as 2018-19 guest curators Taylor Le Melle and Jennifer Lucy Allan.

Starting out at Charlie Wright’s International Bar off Old Street in East London, it soon found a new home at Cafe Oto after the venue opened in 2009. Kammer Klang explored both new music and new ways of presenting repertoire, connecting performers and creators from across genres whilst hosting a platform that encouraged innovation and new collaborations.
