Biography of composer

Composer/Percussionist Kevin Norton is mainly known for his work in the modern avant-garde jazz scene. Norton has released over 15 CDs as a leader or co-leader with his compositions including, For Guy Debord (in nine events) a composition for quintet and woodwind soloist (originally Anthony Braxton) based on the texts of the radical French philosopher whose thought proved central to the riots of Paris, 1968 and Change Dance (Troubled) Energy which draws it’s inspiration from another radical political activist, Kathy Change (born Kathleen Chang). Norton has won numerous grants, awards and residencies including Meet The Composer, the National Endowment for the Arts and the MacDowell Colony.
