James Klopfleisch is an experimental composer/performer currently living in Los Angeles. His work lies on the fault line between music + performance/event, realizing itself somewhere between the framing of sound in time and the overlapping of musical context with the structures of colloquial observation habits. He has written for such ensembles/events as: trio kobayashi, thingNY, and The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space.
He is performed frequently in the U.S., periodically in Europe, and often somewhere in-between the two.
*James earned his Bachelors degree in music from Illinois Wesleyan University and Masters in music from California Institute of the Arts; his teachers have included David Vayo, Michael Pisaro, and Anne LeBaron.
