He is not good at making himself sound interesting so he asked other people to write this section for him.

The responces are as follows:

Lisi Stoessel 1979: "The Jordan Morley is a rare beast with the bones of a bird, the tail of a fox, and the head of a man. He is known both for his spontaneous acts of beauty and his highly developed organizational skills." [Recieved Dec 9th, 2013]
Gorgas Gorgas 1986: "Mr. Morley's aesthetic throughout is stark and violent; a helter skelter melee where gravity is defied as a matter of course, and eerie, askew angles are interspersed with clear gasps of beauty." [Recieved Feb 19th 2011]
Gregory Barnett 1982: "Jordan Morley is beautiful; offering us an impressively articulated combination of overt sensuality, inherent wit, and unexpected moments of disarming gentleness. He also dances" [Received Dec 3rd 2010]
Yarden Raz 1985: Jordan Morley = All the tastiness in the same jar . [Received Nov 24th 2010]

Collaborators | Designers | Artists who I have the pleasure of working with:

Brandon Stirling Baker (Lighting Designer): is a New York-based lighting designer for ballet, contemporary dance, opera and theatre. His lighting for dance has been featured at the Guggenheim Museum (NY), Guggenheim Bilbao (Spain), New York Choreographic Institute, Baryshnikov Arts Center and the New York City Ballet (2012/13 Season). Brandon is a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

Andrew Jordan (Costume Designer and Art Maker): enjoys experimenting with the interplay between various art forms driven by his interest in the relationship of sculpture, installation, and puppetry to the movement of the human body. Focusing recently on scenic and costume design, Andrew has designed for various projects in theatre, dance, film, fashion, and performance art. Andrew has enjoyed recent collaborations with choreographers Christopher Williams, Glen Rumsey, Cori Olinghouse, and Jordan Morley, designers David Quinn and Kristin Costa, and film-maker Mike Olenick. He also works with Izquierdo Studio, a costume-design and prop shop specializing in sculptural costume work, where he has completed projects for The Metropolitan Opera, American Ballet Theatre, and Broadway, among others. Andrew studied sculpture and photography at the Columbus College of Art and Design (BFA) and the Cranbrook Academy of Art (MFA). He lives in Brooklyn. He is also known under the moniker Andytoad.

Mistral Hay (Dancer):
grew up on ballet in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and received her BFA from SUNY Purchase in Visual Art and Dance. She has since moved to Brooklyn and freelances in modern dance, teaches yoga, and snaps an occasional photograph with her dwindling stash of Kodak 400NC.

John Glover (Composer/Sound Designer): John composes music for theater, opera, and the concert hall. His recent work New Arrivals for Houston Grand Opera’s HGOco was hailed by Broadway World as an “intricate and intriguing score that is easy to lose yourself in emotionally.” Commissions from organizations and musicians including the New York Youth Symphony, Houston Grand Opera, American Conservatory Theater, the Five Boroughs Music Festival, and violist Liuh-wen Ting have distinguished him as an emerging voice in contemporary music. John has received numerous awards, fellowships and grants for his music from organizations including Meet The Composer, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Thornton School of Music at USC, and the American Music Center. He received his undergraduate training in composition with a focus in saxophone performance from Indiana University and his masters degree in composition from the University of Southern California. He currently lives in New York City where he is Operations Manager for the DiMenna Center for Classical Music and co-curates the music/art series NewYorksoundCircuit; a grass-roots organization dedicated to premiering new works and finding the intersections between music and other art forms.
