Closing Reception: Cyber-totemic Objects and Sonic Mediators by Guillermo Galindo

Doors and Reception, 6pm
Artist Talk and Demonstration, 7pm
Join us for the (free!) closing reception for Guillermo Galindo’s exhibition at C4NM’s Window Gallery. Galindo’s exhibit features invented sonic devices made out of daily life objects. By identifying with pre-Colombian healing practices, Galindo sees his sonic objects as connectors, healers, reminders and mediators between worlds and realities.

Artist Statement

Around 2005 after I finished my orchestral work Trade Routes commissioned and premiered by the Oakland Symphony orchestra started reimagining concepts behind the late 20th century music of composers such as John Cage, Cornelius Cardew, and Karlheinz Stockhausen as well as being inspired by artists Tarsila do Amaral, Enrique Chagoya and Alejandro Jodorowsky, I was looking for a way to create a musical counterpart to the colonialist hegemonic and rationalist Western art aesthetics prevalent in art and within contemporary music composition.  Incorporating my knowledge of pre-Colombian and non-Western ritualistic practices, I could approach performance in a horizontal manner, as opposed to the the traditional top to bottom approach. I could change the experience between the audience and the musician(s) to become less passive and more participative.
From these experiences, I began to create sonic devices out of daily life objects. I found that each and every object has a particular sound reflective of its shape and materiality. Every object also holds a symbolic meaning and belongs to a specific context. Personal objects are connected to us and sour journey through life. Every form has an association and ecosystem that departs from their shape, material, origin and meaning. By identifying with pre-Colombian healing practices, I see my sonic objects as connectors, healers, reminders and mediators between worlds and realities.
Every sonic device speaks with a different voice when activated.  My intention with the objects carries a physical force that when applied to it becomes part of a sonic vocabulary. The music depends upon the characteristics of the object and the material used to activate it. I consider each instrument a powerful vehicle to heal and address imperative spiritual, political and social justice issues. – Guillermo Galindo (2019)
