Tony James Morton
Tony James Morton is a musician, composer and sound artist whose work focuses on real-time systems aesthetics. These systems created have rules and structures, but within the confines of these boundaries there is enough room for improvisation, chance and probability. This allows for a different interpretation each time, creating unique experiences of sound.
”As an artist I am fascinated in how we interface and improvise with sound. It’s in this case that I enjoy creating my own unique interfaces (or instruments) using both hardware and software. My work focuses on creating, what I like to call, audio/visual systems. These systems have rules, but within those created boundaries is enough room for users to improvise and move around the program how they feel. I like the idea of a piece of work never being interpreted the exact same way twice and these systems allow me this freedom to do so.”
His work has been displayed and performed at; OXO Tower Bargehouse (London, UK), IKLECTIK (London, UK), BEAST FEaST (Birmingham, UK) and Studio 47 (Amsterdam, Netherlands). He is a featured composer on the Steam Greenlight computer game “Exception,” and is credited for soundtrack mixing in the independent short film “The King,” by Frederic Casella.
