The truth that we build in our groups, our cities, our regions, our countries, will reach full potential if we join with other truths and realize that what is occurring in other parts of the world also is part of human history.
Oakland-based independent electronic music performer and DJ working between communities online and off. Citizen of Planet Earth.
Memeshift is the musical moniker of electronic music performer/DJ Morgan Sully.
Morgan coaxes new musical forms from common grooveboxes, old laptops, drum machines, Ableton Live and off-the-shelf synthesizers. Morgan plays with the release of this tension by infusing dancefloors with dissonant, atonal textures which resolve to simple, harmonic melodies only to suddenly collapse back in on themselves as his sets continue past peaktime.
Morgan has played alongside artists like Jega (Planet Mu, Matador), Tom Burbank (Planet Mu), El Poeta (imputor?), Frik n’ Frak (Brokenbeat, Frik n’ Frak), Louis Haiman (Transmat, fwdthought, Fountain Music), Disrupter (disruptermusic), Miguel Vega (Accent Creative), and Marcos Fernandes (Accretions, Trummerflora). Morgan has also produced music for a variety of indoor/outdoor events, local documentaries, an independent film as well as recorded and produced an album with San Francisco-based shoegaze band, Skycamp.
All Morgan’s work is informed by the restless search for harmonizing new forms of expression from the many, connected enclaves occupying our planet.
