Michael Futreal, musician and multimedia artist

I am performing musician and composer using instruments of my own build in the mountain dulcimer, guitar, and tone hole flute families along with other items like ukulele, harmonica, and banjo. Rather than working within a genre, I instead lean towards original and improvisational modal and impressionist music. If you're interested in supporting my work, see patreon.com/twangdarkly.

I often do this stuff with my trio Twang Darkly. I also do some film score work. In 2015, I was Artist-in-Residence at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada.

I experiment with digital filmmaking both as source material and visualization for music, incorporating animation, reconstructed still images, and camera-as-paintbrush techniques.
