Morgan Sorne

 

Morgan Sorne is a Los Angeles based artist, musician, actor, and filmmaker. Through nuanced vocal layering and frenetic scrawled pictographs, Sorne investigates the breakdown of language both sonically and visually throughout a series of site-specific installations in downtown Los Angeles, California. Using a vocal range of four octaves and his own invented language Sorne explores the constructs of communication as a primal emotive experience with the people, landscape and environment of the dramatic ever-evolving city center.
