Franz Kamin
Franz Kamin (b. 1941-2010), musician, composer, and poet, was self-taught as a composer and pianist before studying at the University of Oklahoma and Indiana University. In 1966, he co-founded FIASCO, an experimental music arts organization, with James Brody. Influenced by studies in topology, Kamin produced numerous compositions during FIASCO's five-year existence, including a final work, Concert of Doors (1972).

In 1972 Kamin left Indiana for New York City, engaging with local artists and producing numerous performance pieces, "theatric poems," video and multimedia works, and ensemble pieces for unconventional instruments. Until the mid-'80s, his activity centered in New York and the Hudson Valley, where he was concert manager for Arnold Fini in Rhinebeck. At Station Hill Press, he has published the miscellany Ann Margaret Loves You (1980) and his first novel, Scribble Death (1986). He continues to write, compose, and record in St. Paul, Minnesota.
