Kameron Locke


Kameron Locke (he/him) is a multidisciplinary artist, musicologist, and grassroots activator who uses performance, storytelling, and community work to express the varied facets of identity. Locke performs, analyses, and writes about music from Rising Majority communities – Black, Brown, and ethnically diverse peoples – in order to increase visibility and engagement with this rich musical heritage. (Un)heard and (Un)seen, his self-curated recital series, reflected on the visibility of African-descended composers in Western classical music. Locke writes opera librettos about the complexities of identity. His I Am… trilogy follows three fictional queer characters and highlights LGBTQ+ perspectives often overlooked within Western classical music; VIDA delves into Sol’s journey towards acceptance, self, and ‘being.’ Currently, he is co-writing a libretto about the Tuskegee Airmen and African-American experiences during World War II.

As a community organiser, Locke led and co-created the Black Reels Project, a film festival and filmmaking workshop project in Berlin; The Village, a music recording workshop series for Goldsmiths University LGBTQ+ students; and Classical Inclusion, an after-school program for Chicago youth from diverse backgrounds to explore and create art song. Locke is currently in Australia for the Sydney-debut of Brook Andrew’s GABAN at the Art Gallery NSW for the opening of the Sydney Modern Project.
