Tyshawn Sorey

Tyshawn Sorey is a composer, performer, educator, and scholar who works across a very extensive range of idioms in experimental music. Originally self-taught in composition, piano, trombone, and percussion, he has worked with chamber ensembles and collaborated with a diverse array of musicians, including Muhal Richard Abrams, Ray Anderson, Wadada Leo Smith, Steve Coleman, Michele Rosewoman, Peter Evans, Mat Maneri, Steve Lehman, Mario Pavone, Ellery Eskelin, Vijay Iyer, Dave Douglas, Mark Helias and Butch Morris, among many others. Sorey’s recent article, Music and Meaning, discusses his approach to composition and improvisation, which is scheduled for release in late 2009 as part of a compilation of texts by musicians entitled ARCANA IV (John Zorn, ed.)
