marcus fischer
sound + art from portland, oregon

Marcus Fischer is a first generation American musician + interdisciplinary artist based in Portland, Oregon. His work typically centers around memory, geography + the manipulation of physical audio recording mediums. Slowly unfolding melodies and warm tape saturated drones have become a trademark of his recordings + live performances alike. These sounds have found their way into multimedia installations, short flims, and even into the award winning public radio program Radiolab. Fischer has released a number of recordings on the widely respected 12k label including his photographic + sonic collaborations with label founder Taylor Deupree. In 2017 Marcus Fischer was an artist in residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation / Rauschenberg Residency where he completed "Loss", his most recent album (released September, 2017)

Fischer performs solo, in collaborations, and as a member of unrecognizable now, secret drum band and wild card.
