Jeffrey M. Morris

Jeff Morris curates the Fresh Minds Festival of audiovisual art and created the Performance Technology (PerfTech) program at Texas A&M University. Writings about his works and their aesthetics have been presented at the International Symposium on Electronic Art, Computer Art Congress, Generative Art International Conference, International Computer Music Conference, and Sound and Music Computing Conference. His technology-based performance experiences make art emerge from unusual situations: music drawn from architecture and cityscapes, performance art for the radio, and serious concert music for toy piano, robot, Sudoku puzzles, and paranormal electronic voice phenomena. His compositions, performances, installations, and curated projects have appeared in the Onassis Cultural Center (Athens), Triennale Museum (Milan), the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library (Austin), and the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s “Open House Chicago.” He has won awards in the Concours de Bourges (France), Viseu Rural (Portugal), “Music in Architecture” International Competition (Austin), the Un“Cage”d Toy Piano Competition (NYC), and the “Radio Killed the Video Star” Competition (NYC).
