"Jeffrey Morgan (born March 20, 1954) is an American jazz musician and composer. He has been heavily active in the fields of free jazz and improvised music.

Morgan started studying the Performing Arts: Music; Dance; Experimental Theater; Ethnomusicology; Philosophy of Aesthetics; and Eastern Religion at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington in 1973. During his education he attended the legendary Creative Music Studio in Woodstock, NY, and studied under Karl Berger, Don Cherry, and Oliver Lake as part of his external studies program. Moreover, in 1976 he created his first compositional work for music and dance - Distress Mistress, and performed his first ensemble work, The Delirium Dimension.

In 1977 he created his first multi-media interdisciplinary work - Galactic Visions, a composition for music, dance, slide projectors, costumes, and light design. Over the next several years he conceptualized and composed a few collaborative interdisciplinary works, such as It's Only Money, C.A.S.H, Transient Landscapes; and Mykrocozm, wherein he also had directing and acting responsibilities. In 1982 Morgan co-founded Presto Chango, a musical theater/performance group that incorporated costumes and stage design along with Andrew Woodruff and Bob Heywood. Two years later together, along with Paul Hoskin, he co-founded the New Art Orchestra in Seattle, Washington. He also worked for Muzak as supervisor to re-evaluate their library of music.

In 1987, Morgan moved to Birmingham, Alabama and worked with dancers Mary Horn and Susan Hefner; he also started an ongoing collaboration with LaDonna Smith. In 1988, he made his first tour in Europe with the Seattle-based trio Clank together with Johnny Calcagno and Charly Rowen, as well as working with several international musicians from Denmark, England, Germany, and Czechoslovakia. Since 1991, he has resided in Cologne, Germany, remaining active in the field of jazz and improvised music. He has also engaged in collaborations with Alan Silva, Keith Rowe, Peter Kowald, Paul Lytton and Xu Feng Xia just to name a few.

From 1991 to 1996 he organized the Drang in Klang festival for experimental and improvised music, and in 1994 he established another open-door workshop for Conceptual Composition and Improvisation in Cologne, which led to invitations to lead other workshops in Bielefeld, Hamburg, Lisbon, Leeds and Wuppertal. Also, in 1994 he composed another interdisciplinary work entitled In the Shadow of the Gambler which was performed in Cologne and Krefeld. Moreover, he has led three classes through a group process focused on Installation and Performance: "Elements"; "Haunted House"; and "N-Station" respectively, at the Tekniske Skole in Copenhagen."

"Carter Williams was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1976 and is based in Cologne, Germany. He is active as a composer, performer and computer musician focusing on new and experimental music. Carter's music draws its inspiration from the interaction between performers and technology as well as being rooted in historical performance practice and world music traditions. Recent compositions have investigated extended instrumental techniques (especially new methods for preparing string instruments), nonstandard instruments (e.g. viola d'amore, gu-zheng and baryton), improvisation, natural intonation/microtonality, live-electronics and live-video.

Carter's performance activities include work with traditional notated music, graphic scores, and free improvisation. A main focus of his work as a performer has been the revival of the viola d'amore and he has already premiered numerous new compositions for the instrument. In addition to concerts in Germany, his works and performances have been featured at numerous international festivals and new music centers including Acht Brücken Cologne, Musica Electronica Nova Wroclow, Garde du Nord Basel, June in Buffalo, Logos Stifting Gent, Osterfestival Innsbruck, and Les Hivernales Avignon.

Carter also works in the areas of Sound-Projection and Computer Music. In the Summer of 2003 he attended the stage de composition et d'informatique at Ircam (Paris) and has collaborated with numerous composers and performers to develop custom software for live-electronics and live-video.

In 2003 he completed a Ph.D. in Music Composition at the Sate University of New York at Buffalo, where his principal composition teachers were David Felder and Erik Oña and he studied computer music with Cort Lippe and Richard Dudas. Before coming to Buffalo, he earned a B.Mus. from Rice University in Houston. Carter is still active in higher education and has been invited to give guest lectures and workshops at various institutions such as the Musikakademie der Stadt Basel, the University of Huddersfield, Brunel University London, Hochschule für Musik Köln and the Academy of Media Arts Cologne."
