about

Not content to merely push the boundaries of acoustic fingerstyle technique, Michael weaves guitar, voice, audience, and venue into a greater instrument ecstatically playing itself. These guitar tapping etudes, cyberacoustic looping groovescapes, and heart-spearing love songs pull listeners through a remix of musical idioms past, present, and future - intimate and ecstatic, focused and raw.

Between the living warmth of acoustic tradition and the whirling electronics of festival culture, Michael recently joined the roster at Re:Evolution Media (Alex & Allyson Grey, Govinda, Kaminanda, The Nadis Warriors) and has gigged with an eclectic array of artists – including Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band), Zuvuya (with Michael Travis of SCI), Papadosio, Zach Deputy, That 1 Guy, Jamie Janover, Willy Porter, Andreas Kapsalis Trio, Lunar Fire, Random Rab, Sidecar Tommy of Beats Antique, Heyoka, Ana Sia, D.V.S*, & Cecil "P'Nut" Daniels...and garnered invitations to jam with both legendary instrumentalists (Fareed Haque of Garaj Mahal & Ray White of Frank Zappa) and cutting-edge producers (Entheogenic, Bowie, & K@Dog).

"A transcendent exploration of what one man can achieve with an acoustic guitar...the glitched-out grooves [are] simultaneously calm yet very much switched-on."
- Everyday Guitar Gear

"It takes creativity to make the next step in a newer, more shocking direction, but it takes a visionary to go beyond the breaking point and meet music on the other end of the spectrum. That’s what Michael Garfield does..."
- The Untz

"Fatima / The Apparition" improvised on solo acoustic guitar and hardware effects at CODEX: The DMT RMX Party, 2012.03.09.
