Composer, Creative Director, Arts Administrator
Cameron Lam is an Australian Music Centre represented composer, the Artistic Director of Australian hybrid-art production company, Kammerklang, and the Art Music Specialist at the Australasian Performing Rights Association (APRA AMCOS).
Named in 2020 as one of The Music Network’s 30 under 30 future leaders of the music industry, Cameron’s career has focused on collaboration, interdisciplinary practice, and entrepreneurship. Inspired by game designer, Mark Rosewater and theatre director, Anne Bogart, his music advocates the role and experience of the player in artistic expression. Choice, interaction and agency feature heavily in his work, leading to music that grows and changes with each performance.
He has had the pleasure of collaborating with and writing for many of Australia’s leading musicians such as acclaimed percussionist Claire Edwardes, vocal ensemble Halcyon, the Nexas Saxophone Quartet, contrabass clarinettist Sue Newsome, and YouTuber and EWI player Peter Smith. These partnerships have led to multiple commissions, premieres and four portrait albums – including ‘The Art of Disappearing’ in collaboration with poet Sarah Holland-Batt.
