Brian McCorkle

United States

Brian McCorkle is a composer, performer, and digital artist.

He was the co-Director of the Panoply Performance Laboratory (PPL) for over a decade and a founding member of Varispeed Collective.

About McCorkle’s music the Village Voice says “my melting ears are still recovering” and his collaborations with Varispeed have been praised by the New York Times for their ability “to unleash latent potential” and were called “impressive” – Posture Magazine calls his voice “chillingly resonant.”

He performs regularly as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, flouting genre while drawing from decades of experience as a professional musician in a wide array of contexts while also making electronic instruments combined with sculpture.

McCorkle’s work with PPL has been described by the Guardian as “working to distill a bevy of sophisticated ideas into word and action.”
