He began playing music as a teenager while a student at the San Francisco Art Institute, and later began studying and performing with jazz saxophonist Sonny Simmons. Eventually, Evans relocated to Connecticut to study composition with Anthony Braxton at Wesleyan University. Even after moving to New York in 1994, Evans continued to work closely with Braxton: he has appeared on a number of Braxton's recordings, and he often performed with Braxton as a member of his Ghost Trance Ensemble. After arriving in New York, Evans and Andre Vida also founded the Creative Trans-Informational Alliance (CTIA), which organized concerts featuring prominent avant-garde jazz musicians. Evans' own music, often issued on his own Parallactic label, explores a combination of improvisation and composition, for which he has developed a new system of notation, called the "'Ellipsis & Elliptical Axis Notation System." In addition to a number of solo recordings, Evans has also appeared on disc with Simmons, Seth Misterka, Jackson Moore, Harris Eisenstadt, Martin Vanduynhoven, and Kevin Norton. Evans also works as a filmmaker, and he created a feature-length documentary about Simmons entitled Multiple Rated-X Truth. ~ Charlie Wilmoth, All Music Guide About This Product: SEXTET (recorded 7.20.02) track 1.
