Ernesto Cárcamo Cavazos

Ernesto Cárcamo Cavazos, My Other Guitar and Light Upon Blight play Best Video Performance Space Wednesday, June 6. The cover is $5 and the show starts at 7:30 PM.

Ernesto Cárcamo Cavazos is a composer and guitarist of contemporary acoustic and electronic music. He received an Arts Bachelor degree in music composition from Brown University in 2009, under the tutelage of Gerald Shapiro where he received the Ron Nelson Award for Music Compositional Excellence. Directly following in 2011, he received an MA in composition from Mills College in California, having studied composition with Roscoe Mitchell and Fred Frith receiving the Margaret Lyon Prize for Outstanding Music Student.

Upon finishing his studies he has been active in finding new approaches to composition, reflected in new music for acoustic and electronic ensembles, electronic improvisations , spatially-dependent pieces, and combinations of all three. Although artistically focused on musical experimentation and exploration, his approaches have adapted to fit a wide variety of genres and purposes in film and commercial composition.

In My Other Guitar, Conor from Human Flourishing and Matt from Villager and Coke Divas and stuff do a twin guitar duo with their “other guitar” that they don’t mind breaking.

Much like volcanic eruptions, Light Upon Blight—led by guitarist Jeff Cedrone—performances are uncompromising acts of spontaneous destruction and creation. Purging and destroying the old while simultaneously laying new, fertile ground. No two Light Upon Blight performances are ever the same, just as nature intended. Sounds like: Free Jazz with a noise aesthetic or an exorcism.
