Composer Mario Diaz de Leon and his recent works for strings and electronics, as well as collaborations with video artist Jay King. Mario’s music blends acoustic and electronic instruments to create an ethereal yet percussively detailed unification as meta-instrument. King and Diaz de Leon will present videos that blur boundaries between narrative and musical performance, creating densely edited cinematic situations that often examine ritual process and diagesis.
