Venue: Gallery D

Guelagutza,, for computer sampling and multiple speaker system (1996, revised 1999)
two hours duration

Guelaguetza is a work that has been undergoing almost continuous revisiion and expansion since its conception in 1996. It was original composed as a site-specific work for Chapel of the Chimes, a large columbarium in Oakland California designed by the well-known architect Julia Morgan. Since its first performance it has expanded to include video-playback and multiple source sound distribution.

The constituent components of Guelazguetza are largely media textures culled from broadcast and telecommunications technologies, reworked and further modified in varying degree, using a variety of methods.

The music is performed using a Apple G3 computer, running the Max/MSP programming language in realtime.
