Event Details:

Departing from the art of music composition in search for the crossroads of expression

gal*in_dog (aka Guillermo Galindo), post-Mexican composer, sees no borders. 

During this lecture, Guillermo Galindo will guide us through his journey from academic composition to becoming a visual artist, cyber-totemic medium, performer and professional trouble maker.  He will take us back through his endless pilgrimage as a sound assembler, psycho-healer, socio avant-garde advocate, reverse anthropologist and casual ritualistic practitioner. 

gal*in_dog  will do his best at explaining the process of purposely getting lost and of how being lost brought to collaborate with RIchard Misrach in Border Cantos, having his work at Document14, and being commissioned to compose an interactive string quartet for Kronos among many other things.

Guillermo Galindo is the 2017-18 Mohr Visiting Artist hosted by the Department of Art & Art History. The Mohr Visiting Artist Program is supported by Nancy and Larry Mohr and administered by Office of the Vice President for the Arts.
