Mario Diaz de León on Tzadik

Not an Opera Cabal event....

Friday, September 25, 2009
20 Greene St.

Mario Diaz de León's music focuses on acoustic/electronic hybrids that often fuse the two elements into unified meta-instruments. Often structured as walls and gestures of shimmering sound, his work is influenced by contemporary composers Scelsi, Ligeti, Dumitrescu and Radulescu as well as a wide range of electronic music, free improvisation, underground metal and American noise bands like Metalux and Sejayno. ICE is featured on his debut album for John Zorn's Tzadik label, and members will perform several of his pieces from the album live at this event. Also featured will be the Talea Ensemble, conducted by Nicholas DeMaison.

I loved this album, its what I've been looking for a long time. It acheives the delicate balance of combining classical and electronic.
