Morris, Jeffrey Professor


Jeff Morris creates experiences that engage audiences' minds with their surroundings. His performances, installations, lectures, and writings appear in international venues known for cutting- edge arts and deep questions in the arts. He has won awards for making art emerge from unusual situations: music tailored to architecture and cityscapes, performance art for the radio, and serious concert music for toy piano, robot, Sudoku puzzles, and paranormal electronic voice phenomena.

He has presented work in the Onassis Cultural Center (Athens), Triennale Museum (Milan), D-22 (Beijing's avant-garde music scene), the International Symposium on Electronic Art (Vancouver, Canada), the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and Museum (Austin), and the Chicago Architecture Foundation's Open House Chicago.

His work has won awards in the Concours de Bourges (France), Viseu Rural (Portugal), Music in Architecture International Competition (Austin), the UnCaged Toy Piano Competition (NYC), and the Radio Killed the Video Star Competition (NYC). His CD albums are on the Ravello Recordings label (distributed internationally and online via Naxos).

Writings about his works and their aesthetics have been presented at the International Computer Music Conference, International Symposium on Electronic Art, Generative Art International Conference, and Computer Art Congress and are published by Leonardo Music Journal, Springer, and IGI Global. He serves as Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Art, Culture and Design Technologies.
