Tiago Morais Morgado is composer and improviser, based in Braga (PT). Through his work, he has endeavoured competing accounts in terms of bridging the viola and the laptop . As an improviser, Tiago has worked with musicians such as, Peter Evans, Fred Frith, Mark Dresser, William Parker and Jason Khao Wang, such as in the context of improvisation workshops. Tiago completed a Masters in Sonology, in the Royal Conservatory of Music of the Hague with Richard Barrett. He currently performs solo with live electronics, and with his trio with the virtuoso Baroque violin player James Hewitt and and the brazilian composer Renato Ferreira.
"During my activity as a music critic, theoretical writer and observer of all things concerning creative music, few times I have met such a young musician so commited to discover new things and learn new techniques and vocabularies, developing his music further and further with a rare focus and perseverance. Tiago Morgado was a real surprise when I first heard him play, some years ago, connecting his viola to a laptop computer and some effect pedals, and he continues to be.
Considering the almost solitary conditions of his work, and living in a city far away from the main experimental / improvised / contemporary music circuits in Portugal, mostly concentrated in Lisbon and Oporto, it was kind of a miracle to have someone doing what he did the way he did it. Only a very special person was able of such enterprise, moved by a never ending curiosity and a purpose in life."
