Live electronic music 2220 Arts + Archives presents live electronics wizard KMRU and electroacoustic composer Michelle Moeller for a night of sound art and audio exploration. KMRU is Nairobi-born, Berlin-based sound artist Joseph Kamaru. For him, sound is a sensorial medium through which social, material and conceptual interpretations are manifested in his works. KMRU carries with him a repository of listening experiences from Nairobi and beyond expanding his sonic practices, bringing an awareness of surroundings through creative compositions, installations and performances. He has earned international acclaim from his performances at the Barbican, Berlin Atonal, Présences électronique, and releases on Editions Mego, Subtext, Seil Records. KMRU has carved out a serious and definitive space on the list of essential authors in ambient experimental music – one of the most prolific and innovative artists in his field. Michelle Moeller (b. St. Louis MO) is a composer, performer, and teacher based in Oakland, CA. Her musical practice is ever evolving, guided by restless curiosity and natural resistance to a singular approach. Drawing from both a foundational lyricism and a penchant for dissonant textures, she uses live signals, custom effects, and computer synthesis to build intricate electroacoustic systems. She studied piano performance at the University of Missouri and received an MFA in Electronic Music and Recording Media from Mills College. KMRU's North American tour is supported by the Goethe-Institut 21+
