Guelagutza,, for computer sampling and multiple speaker system (1996,
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.
