  • Lampo 2018 Concert Series at the Graham Foundation

Sergei Tcherepnin Lampo performance, 2017, Madlener House, Chicago.

Lampo commissions, produces, and presents the work of music's leading experimentalists. The organization carefully curates each season of concerts—bringing artists from around the world to Chicago, and supporting the creation and presentation of new works. By design, Lampo produces few projects annually, focusing special attention on each one, and making each a distinct experience for the artists and their audience.

Founder and executive director of Lampo, Andrew Fenchel curates an ongoing series of experimental music concerts and intermedia projects. In addition to his work with Lampo, he has served on numerous review panels and juries locally, nationally, and internationally.

Founded in 1997 and incorporated in December 1998, Lampo is a nonprofit presenter of experimental music and intermedia events. The organization, which is based in Chicago, promotes and supports artists working in electronic and electroacoustic music, free improvisation, sound art, and other new forms.
