Extended Bio Profile:
Through the influence of Charles Ives, whom he met in a recording of the "Concord" Sonata, and of Maurice Ravel, whom he discovered at Yale Music School, Mr. Morris set out to listen for the frozen, untranslated music of the shore he had grown up on as a child, three miles across Core Sound from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. "Shearwater," one of his pieces for piano, was performed in Raleigh during the summer of 2006 within earshot of Maurice Hinson, who liked it so much he's including it in the fourth edition of "Guide to the Pianist's Repertoire." In the winter of 2007, a CD called, "From the Shore World," containing seven original piano pieces mostly from Morris' work in five books, "The Light on the Kingdom Shore," made its appearance. His third book of poetry is scheduled to be published later in 2007 under the title, "Given Out of Worlds." "An Idyl of Core Bank Station and Other Poems," appeared in 2003. Work in progress includes a program to publish the musical output of the composer, of which 14 piano solos are currently in print, as well as two pieces for voice and piano. He is the father of two sons and a daughter and the husband of a wife to whom he was betrothed in 1977 by heaven.
