Since 2005 Butch Merigoni’s work has steadily evolved from a singular practice of painting to a interdisciplinary process of performance and percussion. This evolution has resulted in durational performance work, solo, movement-based research, performance-based collaborations and several music projects. Butch is currently focuses on two projects: ‘All Of It’ and ‘Bernard Hopkins’. 'All Of It’ is a collaborative performance based in sound, sequential movement and task-based actions. 'Bernard Hopkins’, a sonically aggressive and driving band, includes Brian Goodheart on guitar/vocals, Phil Dee on guitar/vocals and Butch on drums. Butch’s impulse to oscillate between performance and music comes from the joy found in experimentation.
