Kevin Drumm
Avant-garde tabletop guitarist Kevin Drumm is an experimental musician based in Chicago, United States. Emerging from the city’s improvised music scene, in the 1990s he became one of the world’s pre-eminent prepared guitar players. Since then his work has expanded to include electroacoustic compositions and live electronic music made with laptop computers and analog modular synthesizers. His early recordings contain mostly sparse, quiet sounds; recent works have been crushingly loud and dense.
