Amadeus Julian Regucera
The work of Amadeus Julian Regucera (b.1984) engages with the embodied and acoustical energy of sound and the erotics of its production. He has had the opportunity to present works around the world: notably, at the ManiFeste (Paris, France), the Festival Musica (Strasbourg, France), Voix Nouvelles (Asnières-sur-Oise, France), the Resonant Bodies Festival and the SONiC Festival (NYC), and as part of the American Composers Forum artist delegation to Cuba, among others. His music has been performed by ensembles such as Ensemble Linea, Alarm Will Sound, Ensemble Intercontemporain, the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, Eco Ensemble, Duo Cortona, and Third Sound. In addition to concert music, his practice intersects with visual and performance art, most notably in the pieces IMY/ILY (2018-19) for solo percussionist; The trauma you keep safe is the pain your pass along (2018) for flutist, performer, and video; and the installation/performance Communication (2013), at the Kulturzentrum bei den Minoriten in Graz, Austria. Amadeus holds degrees in Music from the University of California, San Diego and the University of California, Berkeley, where he lectures in the Department of Music. He currently serves as the Artistic Production Director for the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and UC Berkeley’s Eco Ensemble. Photo: Walker Olesen.
