Clamber (they/he) is a queer artist studying non-places and the disembodiment of being in a society where they do not seem to fit anywhere in particular. Clamber practice involves exploring specific senses through a variety of mediums, including film, music, photography and industrial critique.

Using field recordings and heavy rhythmic patterns, Clamber combines hypnotic visuals with stunning soundscapes to create a sonic portrait of human landscapes often passed through. Their output involves noise performances, installations, sound collage and general states of sonic and sensory arrest. 

They are the co-founder of Bento Records and the former Boathouse Experimental Studios, a queer-run underground venue. They have performed in Portland, Boston and California.

Clamber has worked in creative photography, set design, and in the art department on music videos, films, and professional shoots.
