Anneke Kampman (b.1986. Edinburgh, Scotland) is a performer, composer and sound artist currently based in London. Her practice concerns the politics and poetics of sound and the voice, using performance, video, installation and text to examine the intersection between experimental music and issues of labour, gender, the body, technology and subjectivity. She has recently completed a year of study at Open School East, London, where she pursued research and practice in conversation with the public.

Recent performances and exhibitions include Figures. Figure. Stuck (performance, Open School East 2016), The Heat (collaborative exhibition with Eve Chabanon, Open School East 2016), Where Blips of Light Called Players Disintegrate, (performance, commissioned and presented by Jerwood Visual Arts 2016), I Will Leave You Now And This Loudspeaker Will Take My Place (Exhibition, Lancaster Women in Sound Symposium 2015), Labyrinthine, a collaborative Opera performed at The Self The Other Festival in Brussels (Commissioned by La Monnaie De Munt/QO2) and the BBC Glasgow Tectonics Festival in 2016 and The As If Body Loop (BBC Tectonics Festival 2014).

Collaboration is key to her practice and in 2016 she has worked on projects with Eve Chabanon, The Florence Lawrence Chorus and Lucy Duncombe and contributed to many collaborative endeavours in performance, pedagogical and expanded research practice at Open School East and beyond. In 2017 she will work with the theatre company Blood of the Young and writer David Greig on a new play Daphne Orams Wonderful World Of Sound  which will tour nationally in Spring.
