Amadeus Regucera

As an active composer, the work of Amadeus Julian Regucera (b.1984) engages with the embodied and acoustical energy of sound and its production, the erotics of performance, the musical vocabulary of popular music, and noise. He has had the opportunity to present works at the June in Buffalo Festival (2011); the Wellesley Composers Conference (2011); the Mexican Centre for Music and Sonic Arts (CMMAS, 2010); L@TE: Friday Nights at BAM (Berkeley, 2014); the Impuls Academy (Graz, Austria, 2013); the International Summer Courses in Darmstadt, Germany (2014); the Hong Kong Modern Academy (2015); the Resonant Bodies Festival (New York, 2015) and his music has been performed by ensembles such as the JACK string quartet, Ensemble Pamplemousse, Ensemble L’arsenale, the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, and vocalist Rachel Calloway with violinist Ari Streisfeld. 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. He is also the drummer in the Oakland band, Buttons. Upcoming projects include a new piece for Ensemble Linea for the 2015 Festival Musica in Strasbourg, France.
