A composer and multi-instrumentalist known for his work spanning the worlds of modern classical, experimental electronic, extreme metal, and creative improvised music, Mario Diaz de Leon celebrates his release of Cycle and Reveal with a one-night performance. A compilation of recent pieces for acoustic instruments with electronics, the album moves from hypnotic repetitions that radically collide with colorful outbursts to primal, incantatory, and improvisatory sonic landscapes. This concert includes a solo audiovisual set by Diaz de Leon followed by performances from Cycle and Reveal by his longtime collaborators in the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and Talea Ensemble. Organized by Lumi Tan.
