Chris Kallmyer

Chris Kallmyer is an artist and musician who works with sound and spaces. His compositions and installations explore a participatory approach to making music through touch, taste, and process using everyday objects to point to who we are and where we live. The work invites a rethinking of the traditional audience and performer relationships through workshops, installations, and site-based explorations of sound, listening, and interaction. Chris works as a core collaborator with Machine Project and the experimental, modern music ensemble wild Up. He has presented work in a wide variety of contexts, including the Walker Art Center, Hammer Museum, Getty Center, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Disney Hall, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, among others. Chris earned his MFA in music from the California Institute of the Arts.
