A Tribute to Butch by Wayne Horvitz

One of Butch’s early and frequent collaborators, Wayne Horvitz, has written a beautiful tribute to Butch on the NewMusicBox Blog.

It’s a moving exploration of Butch as human being and artist:

No matter how far out the music got, Butch always wanted it to feel like a song, like a singular piece of music, and his system and his presence allowed him to create that. It didn’t always work. No music always works. But the potential was phenomenal, and it created a music that simply couldn’t exist any other way.

Butch’s humanity was phenomenal. Every one of us who feels like Butch was one of our dearest friends knows we share him with hundreds of other people, if not more.

I encourage you all to read the whole piece, My Only Mentor, Butch Morris (1947-2013) here.
