Corey Fogel (b. 1977) is a drummer and artist currently living in Los Angeles, CA. His practice is based in momentary encounters, often involving the intersection of sounds, objects, textiles, foods and frequently include collaboration with other musicians and artists. Fogel engages the viewer to considering sound as a medium on par with paint and cellulose, a constant in our daily lives. Through his work he challenges us to consider the contexts in which we create, store and understand sound.
Fogel’s works have been presented at Machine Project, Los Angeles; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Human Resources, Los Angeles; Redling Fine Art, Los Angeles; The Wulf, Los Angeles; The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Oaxaca, and REDCAT; Los Angeles. His performance work was also included in J. Paul Getty Museum’s Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival and West of Rome’s Trespass Parade.
Fogel also performs and composes in many rock, jazz, noise, folk, and chamber music ensembles. In addition to touring and recording internationally, Fogel has been a member of groups: Julia Holter, Missincinatti, The Mae Shi, Gowns, Cryptacize, Barbez, Monstro, The Curtains, Learning Music, Nowcloud, Dominique Leone, 18 Squared.
