Klimchak is a composer who is known for his use of a combination of electronics & homebuilt instruments. In electronic music he is known for his use of the Marimba Lumina, an electronic percussion instrument designed by Don Buchla. With the Marimba Lumina Klimchak is able to perform live music that would normally take at least 4 musicians. His multi-instrumental compositions are played with 4 separate mallets, six foot pedals and a breath controller. As added touches, his sets usually include 4 or 5 small percussion instruments, some chanting or tuvan throat singing and at least one solo on the theremin. He is currently working on a performance art cooking show, which will be premiered in spring 2015 in Atlanta.
