All Possible Music

Chris Kallmyer

December 7, 2019—Ongoing

All Possible Music is a new film that envisions all music that could ever happen in casual handwritten descriptions: Blissful symphony for an audience of careful listeners, bangin’ dance hits in a cabin set deep in the woods, a solo contrabass alone on a mountaintop, or Avant-garde drum machines that heal the earth and its people.


Chris Kallmyer is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work focuses on sound and space. His unconventional musical works use everyday objects and other senses, such as taste and touch, to engage the observer in questions about the physical environment and our presence within it. Kallmyer puts pressure on the traditional audience-performer relationship, and his work frequently takes place in nontraditional performance spaces such as closets, igloos, museums, or mountaintops. In recent years, Kallmyer has garnered commissions from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Walker Art Center, Pulitzer Arts Foundation, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the City of Los Angeles among other spaces in America and Europe.
