Concert is Tuition Fundraiser for Pablo Leñero’s Last Year of College.

Promo Chris&Pablo3

By Edna Zambrano

México Atemporal is a series of musical compositions and improvisations that surge from an ongoing exploration of the symbiosis between the indigenous instruments of Mexico and Mesoamerica, the piano, and electronic manipulation of sound in real time. This exploration is guided and based in the study of the Mesoamerican codex, Mexican dance tradition, and the study of classical and jazz pianists and composers like Cage, Debussy, Armengol, and Bill Evans. This unique collaboration between Christopher Garcia and Pablo Leñero seeks to intertwine the resonances of the past and present of Mexico.

Proceeds from the concert will go to help Leñero pay for his last year of college at the California Institute of the Arts.

Pablo Leñero Archer is a young composer, pianist, and conductor from San Miguel de Allende. Through his studies of the music of the above-mentioned composers, Leñero explores the integration of the classical realm with the folkloric and indigenous traditions of Mexico and the Americas. In his music, Leñero experiments with alternative media and materials as part of the process of music creation, such as the use of paintings and colors as scores, as well as the use of the physical space as a means of musical expression.

Christopher Garcia is a performer, composer, and improviser who continues to garner popular and critical acclaim in 29 countries on five continents for his original compositions. He composes for indigenous breath and percussion instruments of Mesoamerica, Mexico, and India, alongside either classical guitar, marimba, pedal harp, piano, violin, woodwind quintet, or mixed chamber ensemble. Garcia is frequently invited as a guest soloist to perform with chamber and symphonic orchestras throughout Europe and the Americas on instruments not usually associated with “western classical music,” including the North Indian tabla, the South Indian kanjira and ghatam, and the Tlapan huehuetl, teponaztli, huilacapiztli, atecocolli, and more.
