OA2 Artist

David Borgo



Borgo has the history of the music down pat... He touches on the past, teases with the future, but mainly speaks in the present tense.
- Frank Rubolino, All About Jazz

DAVID BORGO is a Professor of Music at UC San Diego where he teaches in the Integrative Studies and Jazz and Music of the African Diaspora Programs. He has a B.M. degree in Jazz Studies from Indiana University and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Ethnomusicology from UCLA.

David won first prize at the International John Coltrane Festival (1994) and he has toured widely, including featured performances in Sweden, Holland, Armenia, Hong Kong, Macau and Mexico City. He has seven CDs and one DVD under his own name, and his book Sync or Swarm: Improvising Music in a Complex Age (Continuum 2005) won the Alan Merriam Prize in 2006 from the Society for Ethnomusicology.

David has presented research at conferences organized by the Society for Ethnomusicology, The Sonneck Society for American Music, The International Association for the Study of Popular Music, The International Society for Improvised Music, The Guelph Jazz Colloquium, the Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology, and the College Music Society, among others.

He currently performs with his electro-acoustic duo KaiBorg, which explores the intersections between live audio and video processing and free improvisation, with his trio Initial Conditions, and with his sextet Kronomorfic, which explores polymetric time.
