about

Michael Garfield's music remixes the familiar conventions of acoustic guitar, welding avant-fingerstyle technique into a cybernetic bed of live hardware production. Picking (or often bowing, with an electromagnet) while twisting knobs and DJ'ing live samples with his toes, Michael's performances embody his training as an evolutionary biologist and futurist – liberating the organic into the digital, and the idioms of Americana into a new species of transcendental trance.

His music perched between scenes and worlds, Michael has gigged with an eclectic array of artists, including Tim Reynolds, Papadosio, Zach Deputy, That 1 Guy, The Nadis Warriors, Jamie Janover, Willy Porter, Andreas Kapsalis Trio, Random Rab, Sidecar Tommy of Beats Antique, Heyoka, Ana Sia, D.V.S*, Stuart Davis, Lunar Fire, Whitewater Ramble, Spoonfed Tribe, Cecil "P'Nut" Daniels, Delta Nove, Cohen, The Floozies, and Interstellar Transmissions...and garnered invitations to jam onstage with the likes of Fareed Haque, Entheogenic, and Bird of Prey.

Known to improvise entire shows for listening-room audiences, festival lawn love puddles, yoga classes, and ecstatic dance groups across the United States, Michael also hosts the Looper's Night and Paint Jam monthlies in Austin, Texas – two boundary-breaking residencies bridging audience and artist in collaboration...
