Lampo: Thomas Ankersmit
Feb 25, 2012 (8pm)

Please RSVP

Lampo and the Graham Foundation are pleased to welcome Thomas Ankersmit as he presents new work created for the Serge analogue modular synthesizer, an instrument developed by Serge Tcherepnin at CalArts in the 1970s. Ankersmit will play his own Serge modular live, mixing with pre-recorded material that he created with the original Serge synthesizers at CalArts, where he has been an artist in residence since December 2011. The performance will be processed in real-time in quad.

Thomas Ankersmit (b. 1979, Leiden, the Netherlands) is a musician and installation artist based in Berlin and Amsterdam. His main instruments are the Serge analogue modular synthesizer, computer and alto saxophone. He frequently works with New York minimalist Phill Niblock and electroacoustic artists Valerio Tricoli and Kevin Drumm. Ankersmit last performed at Lampo in September 2008, when he presented a solo concert for alto sax, Serge synthesizer and computer.

This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music, sound art and intermedia projects.
