WHO IS KLAUS NOMI?
Klaus Sperber was born in 1944 in the Bavarian Alps.He grew up in Berlin where he developed
a passion for opera.Working as a child extra at the German Opera house and attending the Berlin Music school as a teenager.Later
on he worked as an usher at the Berlin Opera.
Klaus moved to NY City in 1972 where he soon became a Gordon Blue pastery
chef.He often posed as a mannequin in a window at Fiorucci,a NYC's high fashion store.
WHAT MAKES NOMI STAND OUT
FROM ALL THE OTHERS?
Klaus Nomi dared to be different as he combined opera with pop,rock,cabaret and mixed it all
with a futuristic sound of synthesizers.Take all this together with his almost inhuman voice,raging from operatic soprano
to Prussian general and what you get is NOMI!
Then being the year 1982.I got introduced to Nomi's music through a friend . The "Simple Man" album
got me hooked on Nomi.
Remembering walking down a street, reading my favorite music magazine. One
article catching my attention...Nomi had died of a unknown disease of which I had never heard,didn't even know how to read
that weird looking word.....AIDS?
After all these years well what can I say....look at this page
and see what Klaus Nomi means to me.At times wondering where he would have been as an artist and what he would have become
if he still had been among us today.
But all what remains are memories,his music and his voise!
...Man What A Voise!.....
Hopefuly this page will make others want to check out Nomi's music. As for those who know and
love Nomi like I do.
He is among us forever.
