NonSeq: Gavin Gamboa

Gavin Gamboa is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work revolves around improvised and notated composition, algorithmic video art, and short-form cinema. Between 2014 and 2020, Gavin released one album a month on Bandcamp, mixing both contemporary and classical music, all available with a free Creative Commons license.

Collaborations include performances with Erykah Badu and the Dallas Symphony, the score for filmmaker E. Elias Merhige’s latest opera Polia & Blastema, incidental music for modern dancer Josseline Black at the Miedzynardowe Spotkania Teatrów Tańca in Poland, and sessions with percussionists Frank Moka and Max Jaffe for Flying Lotus x Brainfeeder’s Twitch series “The Hit”.

For this performance, Gavin will be bringing an interdisciplinary show of music and visuals to the Good Shepherd Center, in what promises to be an exploration of the spatial volume and ritual lineage of the Chapel itself through an enmeshed praxis incorporating contemporary classical, jazz, and live-coding.
