Laura Goldhamer

Musician, Animator and Inventor

Laura Goldhamer is a folk songwriter, guitarist, old-time banjo player, stop-motion animator and instrument inventor. She merges traditional Americana with the avant-garde, mixing earnest folk with inventive homemade technologies.

During performances, Laura projects her intricately composed stop-animation films to illustrate her lyrics. Her performances also feature her self-constructed speaker/drum/doorbell machine, “the Roboctopus,” an eight-channel robotic percussive ensemble made of speakers, drums and doorbells.
