Guillermo Galindo’s artistic work blurs the conventional limits that define both music and the art of music composition itself.
Taking a wide approach to concepts such as musical form, time perception, music notation, sonic archetypes, and instrumentation, Galindo has created a spectrum of works ranging from symphonic and chamber compositions to live performance art based in musical and visual computer interactions. Embracing electroacoustic music, opera, film, instrument building, three-dimensional installations, improvisation, and sound design, his work remains in constant flux.
Galindo’s compositions have been performed and shown at major festivals, concert halls, and art exhibits throughout the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. His orchestral works include the symphonies "Ome Acatl,” premiered in Mexico City by the OFUNAM orchestra (1997), and “Trade Routes” (2006), commissioned and premiered by the Oakland East Bay Symphony Orchestra and chorus. His operas include “Califas 2000,” with text and performance by MacArthur Fellow Guillermo Gomez Peña, and “Decreation/Fight Cherries,” with text by MacArthur Fellow Anne Carson.
