Bill Morrison (United States)

Bill Morrison’s work typically re-purposes archival film footage, which is then edited to the work of contemporary composers. “Decasia” (67 min, 2002), a collaboration with composer Michael Gordon, was selected to the US Library of Congress’ 2013 National Film Registry. “The Great Flood” (78 min, 2013), a collaboration with guitarist / composer Bill Frisell, won the Smithsonian Ingenuity Award of 2014 for historical scholarship.
