Margareth Kammerer [from Berlin] (vocal, guitar)


Margareth Kammerer (マーガレット・カメラー)


ドイツ、ベルリン在住の歌手、作曲家。常に新たな即興音楽創造の世界的中心地として君臨するベルリンにおいて、2000年代初頭より、多くの先進的即興演奏家と積極的に交流しながら、彼女ならではの極めて独特で魅力的な曲作りと歌唱を築いてきた。彼女のソロ作品では、E.E. カミングス、パウル・ツェラン、アントナン・アルトー、ガートルード・スタインなど近現代文学作品のテキストを歌詞として使い、それに自ら曲を付けて歌うことが多い。

2005年には、Michael Thieke、Kai Fagaschinski、Christof Kurzmann とともに The Magic I.D. を結成。現在に至るまで断続的に活動を続け、生楽器、エレクトロニクス、ヴォーカルを程よく融合しつつ、サウンドに対する探究心にも溢れた演奏を聴かせている。

また、演劇 (女優、歌手、作曲家として)、映画音楽、ラジオ・ドラマの仕事も多くこなしている。


Margareth Kammerer

Singer, musician, composer
Lives and works in Berlin

This is Margareth Kammerer's first visit to Japan.

Margareth Kammerer is a singer and composer. She works solo and in various ensembles and projects. Her performance work includes her own compositions as well as music for theatre, film and radio plays. In her compositions there are influences from genres as diverse as song, blues, minimalism, folk and sound research. She regularly collaborates with musicians from the "Echtzeitmusic" scene and researches expanded forms of the song. In her solo activities she often works with texts of modern and contemporary literature, such as e.e. cummings, Anne Carson, Paul Celan, Antonin Artaud, Tchicaya U Tam'si and Gertrude Stein.

In addition to her solo activity, Kammerer's main band is The Magic I.D., which has been in existence since 2005 (with Michael Thieke, Kai Fagaschinski, Christof Kurzmann). Their compositions oscillate between sound research, electronics and songwriting, and complex alternative song formats are created in their work. Their first album, 'Till my breath gives out, was released by the American label Erstwhile Records, and their second, I'm so awake/sleepless I feel, was released by Staubgold. In 2010/2011 Kammerer released a cassette titled Secret spirit house with Ellen Fullman and Theresa Wong on the label Important Records. In 2010 she created a work for Luciano Chessa's "Orchestra of Intonarumori" (the noise-producing music machine Intonarumori was an invention of Luigi Russolo). The piece was released in 2013 on a double LP on the Belgian label Subrosa, which includes compositions by Pauline Oliveros, Ellen Fullman, Mike Patton and Sylvano Bussotti. In collaboration with musicians of the composer-performer Ensemble Les Femmes Savantes (Andrea Neumann, Ute Wassermann, Sabine Ercklentz), in 2017 she composed pieces set to poems by the Canadian poet Anne Carson.

"Asteroseismology," a feminist-utopian music performance with Sabine Ercklentz and the filmmaker Lucile Desamory, was created in 2018. In 2019 she is working on a composition with field recordings about a historically and geographically complex landscape between Italy, Austria and Switzerland. Since 2014 she has been collaborating with Cat Lamb, Rebecca Lane and Bryan Eubanks, and with Andrew Lafkas she is working on Lafkas's open compositions/guided improvisations. Since 2018 she has been a member of Erik Wong's guitar ensemble.
