Sam Morrison

Sam Morrison is a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in New York City. He was trained in piano and trumpet performance, jazz and other improvised forms, African and Caribbean musics and musicology, but many of his main musical outlets are largely or entirely self-taught – particularly composition, playing piano as an improviser, and lo-fi/sample-based music. Generally his music aims to reflect that duality – culturally coded forms and self-directed discovery. Sam moved from Minneapolis to New York in 2008 and has been doing graduate work in media and cultural studies (with an emphasis on music, aesthetics and collaboration) while performing at various venues including the Knitting Factory, Exapno, 16 Beaver and the New School. He will debut new noise-rock, post-bop and chamber music projects in 2013.
