Booker Stardrum is a composer, percussionist, producer, and educator. His compositions are sculptural, carved from the dense layering of instruments and manipulated samples, a pantonal harmonic sense, and an intuitive approach to rhythm. Over the course of a three-day residency at Indexical, Booker will collaborate with local musicians Samantha Bounkeua (violin) and Genoa Brown (saxophone) on a new composition incorporating live electronics and acoustic instruments, and featuring live video projection by artist Miranda Javid

This project is supported in part by an Emergency Grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, as well as a bequest from the Lana K. Weeks Trust to Indexical.

Booker Stardrum


Stardrum has released three solo records (‘Crater in 2021,’‘Temporary etc.’ in 2018 and ‘Dance And’ in 2015). ‘Temporary etc’ is a highly personal amalgamation of electro-acoustics, minimalism, ambient, jazz, and contemporary experimental electronic music that The Wire said “further solidifies Stardrum’s position as one of America’s most intriguing composers.” ‘Crater’ expanded on the techniques of his previous effort with “jaw-unhinging splatterdrum masterworks that seem to explode from Stardrum's tactile performance (BoomKat).” Throughout the last decade, Stardrum has collaborated, toured, and recorded with Horse Lords, Lee Ranaldo, Carl Stone, Wendy Eisenberg, Weyes Blood, Lisel, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Landlady, and the Young Jean Lee Theater Company, in addition to countless experimental and improvisational collaborations. He has toured in the US, Europe, Asia, and South America and has performed at such festivals as Big Ears (US), Rewire (NL), Le Guess Who (NL), Moers (DE), Meltdown (U.K.), Brighton (U.K), Festival Bo:m (ROK), Hopscotch (US) and Ecstatic Music (US). His discography includes solo and collaborative releases on independent labels such as NNA Tapes, Northern Spy Records, Mexican Summer, Saddle Creek, Luminelle, Prom Night Records and Home Tapes.
