His performances, installations, lectures, and writings appear in international venues known for cutting-edge arts and deep questions in the arts.

His music is on Ravello Records.


    Jeffrey M. Morris is a composer, performer, and director of the PerfTech program at Texas A&M University (USA). He creates instruments and performance situations that allow audiences to consider the impact of techno-mediation on the human experience: presence, authenticity, and the passing of time. Often, this involves novel sounds, ways of moving on stage to play an instrument, and ways of building a musical performances. He uses performance to ask, “What does it mean to be human in the twenty-first century?” Morris has presented works in the Milano Triennale museum, Onassis Cultural Center (Athens), Austin Museum of Art (Texas), Flea Theater (New York City), and the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and Museum (Texas). He also curates the Fresh Minds Festival of audiovisual art.
