Jeremiah Cymerman

Jeremiah Cymerman (pronounced SIMMER-MAN) is a composer and clarinetist based in Brooklyn, New York. He was born May 4th, 1980 in log cabin in North Georgia. Since 2002 Cymerman has been active in a wide variety of musical contexts and has been honored to present his work in some of New York City's most highly regarded venues for avant-garde and experimental music including The Stone, Issue Project Room, Roulette, Anthology Film Archives, Washington Square Church, and The Tank, among many others. Described by Time Out New York as “one of downtown's most inventive and resourceful composer-performers” Cymerman has performed with a wide range of contemporary artists including Jessica Pavone, Otomo Yoshihide, Jandek, Ned Rothenberg, Ikue Mori, John Zorn, Toby Driver, Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris, Sylvie Courvoisier, Trevor Dunn, Walter Thompson, Nate Wooley, Mary Halvorson, and Matthew Welch, among many others.

With a foot deeply rooted in the avant-garde tradition of downtown New York and an interest in exploring new methods for clarinet performance, Cymerman has developed a highly personal language of extended clarinet techniques which are often augmented by a customized analog electronics set-up. After several self-released hand-made cd's, in February 2007 Cymerman released his first album as a leader, “Big Exploitation”, on Solponticello Records, a record that found him in the role of conductor of a 13 piece improvising big band

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
