_MG_1188The 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, the Festival Musica, Voix Nouvelles (France), the Resonant Bodies Festival and the SONiC Festival (New York), the Havana Festival of Contemporary Music as part of the American Composers Forum artist delegation to Cuba, the Mizzou International Composers Festival, the Hong Kong Modern Academy, the International Summer Courses in Darmstadt, Germany, the Impuls Academy (Austria), June in Buffalo, and the Mexican Centre for Music and Sonic Arts. His music has been performed by ensembles such as Ensemble Linea, Alarm Will Sound, JACK string quartet, Ensemble Intercontemporain, EXAUDI vocal ensemble, Ensemble Pamplemousse, the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, Eco Ensemble, Duo Cortona, Third Sound, and the University of California, Berkeley Symphony Orchestra. In addition to concert music, his practice intersects with visual and performance art, most notably in the piece Communication (2013), which was featured at the Kulturzentrum bei den Minoriten in Graz, Austria as part of the group show Seelenwäsche and a collaboration for performer, Schlachtfeld with choreographer Elysa Wendi (2015). Upcoming projects include a new piece to be performed by the composer alongside flutist Stacey Pelinka and a new work for the reed quintet Splinter Reeds. Amadeus holds degrees in Music from the University of California, San Diego (B.A. 2006) and the University of California, Berkeley (PhD, 2016).
