Marshall Trammell is an experimental archivist, percussionist, conductor, and composer. His aesthetics and activism are centered in social change interventions and generate new local and global ecologies that embrace improvisation as a collective, movement-building tool in the creation of post-capitalist imaginaries. Marshall’s work also uses political aesthetic theory, data creation, mapping, and collective music-and-art making in order to step out of the domain of traditional cultural institutions, relocating the act of co-production back in the community. Marshall’s Music Research Strategies is a performing-political education platform for embodied social justice vernacular, organizational strategy, and alternative infrastructure development. Through an extensive career Marshall has collaborated with a numerous amount of musicians including Raven Chacon, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Dohee Lee, Lisa Harris and David Murray.
