Sound artist subverting the capitalist paradigm
Morgan Evans-Weiler is a Boston based musician, artist and educator. He grew up in northern Michigan, studied violin performance and music composition in Kalamazoo then moved to Boston in 2008. As a half-assed renaissance man, he works not only with sound and visual art but with land cultivation, food fermentation and preservation, critical theory, electronics and oatmeal preparation.
He releases tapes by Boston artists on his Individual Lines label and produces shows at Washington St. Art in Somerville, MA. His current projects include the large Boston ensemble Deleuzer, duos with Jed Speare and Noell Dorsey (Katze), his solo work and the HMQ.
Morgan uses violin, electronics and other media to explore the dichotomy of stasis and activity. His current solo work involves a deconstructed violin and an array of natural overtones against a counterpoint of sine waves and subtle noise to create rich environments that convey both a motion and stillness in their perpetual variation. He creates drawings and digital images as well as text and graphical scores to convey concrete and abstract ideas of motion in stasis.
