Andrew Weathers (b.1988) is a composer and improviser originally from Chapel Hill, NC currently based in Littlefield, TX where he is engaged in a long-term project to renovate a storefront downtown. His music engages with notions of place, tradition, repetition, and spirit, taking cues from folk, experimental, and punk lineages. He studied composition at UNC-Greensboro and electronic music at Mills College in Oakland, CA. His work is focused on world-building, using art as a vehicle to create the world we want from what we have.
Weathers primarily performs and records solo and heads up the utopic chamber-folk group Andrew Weathers Ensemble. He also works regularly with Tethers, Real Life Rock & Roll Band, Satin Spar, and Common Eider, King Eider, among others. Over the past decade of intense activity, Weathers has collaborated or studied with numerous figures of experimental music including Pauline Oliveros, Fred Frith, Roscoe Mitchell, Tatsuya Nakatani, Eugene Chadbourne and many others.
