We’re pleased to thank Cameron Lam for his generous support. Cameron pledged support for MC at the Project Patron level. Cameron writes:

“Making Conversation continues the inspired, engaging and inclusive vision of the Making Waves project – providing a window into the world of Australian art music. I have endless faith in Peggy and Lisa’s ability to curate, cultivate and promote the voices of Australia’s musical community and look forward to the results.”

about cameron lam


After growing up in Orange in country NSW, Cameron Lam is now based in Sydney, NSW working as a composer and hybrid art-production company Kammerklang. He is an avid dabbler and appreciator of the various arts, having completed his honours in Composition at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and currently studying static and dance trapeze at B&B Studios under performance artist Lil Tulloch.

You can learn more about Cameron at his website

Cameron is also Artistic Director of Kammerklang. German for “Chamber sound”, Kammerklang specialises in the collaboration of music and other artforms, literally focusing on the fusion of sound and the “chamber” or space it’s performed in. Whether that space includes dancers, paintings, video projection, sculpture or circus performers depends on the project and nature of the works featured. The aim of Kammerklang is to present and promote new artistic creation that is inquisitive, detailed and accessible while still fostering exploration and communication between the arts. Featuring guest artists from all fields, a large chamber orchestra, and numerous young talented composers and artists, Kammerklang is “Sounds Made Real”.

Thanks goes out again to all our generous donors many of whom we’re pleased to be able to offer rewards in the form of CDs and signed scores, CutCommon manuscript books and Making Waves tote bags. Further thanks to the composers who donated the CDs and signed scores that we were able to offer as rewards.
