ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Josef Klammer was born in 1958 in Lienz, Austria. He is a photographer, curator, composer and drummer. As an Austrian musician and media artist, he has been continuously working on the tonal enhancement of his instrumentarium, as well as the exploration and transformation of media-immanent music potentials since the mid-1980s. Klammer has presented exhibitions, sound installations, and music projects in Vienna, Hong Kong, Seville, New York, and many other cities. He has composed music for TV and movies; radio plays and radio programs for the ORF (Austrian Broadcast Corporation); and stage music for theatre productions in Hamburg, Stuttgart, Schwerin, Gera, Ljubljana, Klagenfurt, Linz, and Graz. Klammer performs with a wide variety of ensembles playing new, improvised electronic and experimental music, and is the curator of diverse festivals and inventive music projects and workshops in schools. In 2015, he received the Award of Distinction for the project "Drumming Is an Elastic Concept" at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz.
