Amadeus Regucera

Oakland, CA         

The 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 pieces IMY/ILY (2018)– a monodrama for solo percussionist, commissioned by Andy Meyers (The Living Earth Show); The trauma you keep safe is the pain your pass along (2018) for flutist, performer, and video; 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 performances include the premiere of RAW for Eco Ensemble commissioned by Cal Performances (March 2019) and a new work Eternity will be Velocity for the University of California, Berkeley Symphony Orchestra (April 2019). Amadeus holds degrees in Music from the University of California, San Diego (B.A. 2006) and the University of California, Berkeley (PhD, 2016).

The trauma you keep safe is the pain you pass along

bass flute, piccolo: Stacey Pelinka
music, text, video: Amadeus Julian Regucera
“But Tell Me How it Feels” Performance Festival, SOMArts, San Francisco, May 2018
“The trauma you keep safe is the pain you pass along,” is a visual diptych for performer and flutist. If read biographically, the piece is a psychological study of how trauma lives in one’s body and how it’s possible for it to be passed along to another’s. Like a visual diptych, it is presented in two panels where the physical and sonic energy is shared and passed between the two.
