About the artist

For Joseph Kamaru (KMRU) a Nairobi-born Berlin-based sound artist, sound is a sensorial medium through which social, material and conceptual interpretations are manifested in his works. KMRU carries with him a repository of listening experiences from Nairobi and beyond, expanding his sonic practices and bringing an awareness of surroundings through creative compositions, installations and performances.

He has earned international acclaim from his performances at the Barbican, Berlin Atonal, Présences électronique, and releases on Editions Mego, Subtext, Seil Records.

KMRU has carved out a serious and definitive space on the list of essential authors in ambient experimental music and is one of the most prolific and innovative artists in his field.
