Michael Futreal, musician and multimedia artist

I am performing musician and composer using instruments of my own build in the mountain dulcimer, guitar, and tone hole flute families along with other items like ukulele, harmonica, and banjo. Rather than working within a genre per se, I instead lean towards original and improvisational modal music.

I often do this stuff with my trio Twang Darkly. I also do some film score work. In 2015, I was Artist-in-Residence at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada.

On a related front, I experiment with digital filmmaking both as source material and visualization for music, incorporating compositing, reconstructed still images, alongside camera-as-paintbrush techniques.
