Booker Stardrum

Booker Stardrum is a Los Angeles based percussionist/improviser/composer. Born from his own idiosyncratic performance practice, his solo work exists at the intersection of minimalism, sound collage, and percussive virtuosity. Seeking to explore a slippery and elusive vertical sonic space, Booker’s recent compositions involve the dense layering of other instruments and a focus on pan-tonality and an intuitive approach to rhythm. A longtime touring and recording member of NYC bands Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Landlady and VaVatican, Booker has also performed and toured with Lee Ranaldo, Weyes Blood, Nels Cline, playwright and theater director Young Jean Lee, and more.
