Laura Goldhamer (Denver)
Laura Goldhamer, a folk songwriter, guitarist, old-time banjo player, stop-motion animator, and inventor, draws from a variety of purely American traditions; however, Laura’s ability to merge traditional Americana with the avant-garde, mixing inventive homemade technology with earnest folk, is particularly noteworthy. During performances, she projects her intricately composed stop-animation films (which she has created to illustrate her song lyrics). These visuals are synced with live music delivery, as well as with an installation of her self-conceived and self-constructed speaker/drum/doorbell machine, affectionately named “The Roboctopus”, an eight-channel robotic percussive ensemble with speakers in drums, and doorbells, both on music stands and rigged up to hit cymbals. www.lauragoldhamer.com
