Born in New York City in 1963, percussionist, composer and visual artist Billy Martin dedicated himself to music full-time at age 17—casting himself into Manhattan’s thriving, eclectic musical landscape. He carefully honed his craft everywhere from chamber orchestra stages to Brazilian nightclubs to the underground performance spaces that nurtured the burgeoning downtown improv community. He has published anti-instructional films, literature, artwork and music worldwide. He is currently the executive director and CEO of Creative Music Studio a not-for-profit foundation (founded 1971 by Karl Berger, Ingrid Sertso and Ornette Coleman) to expose musicians from all backgrounds to the art of improvisation.
