Transillumination #1

A DNA sequencing orchestration

Music for piano, brass, strings, voices, percussion, mallet instruments and barrel organ. Composed by Antonio Jose Guzman. Created using Guzman DNA sequencing into a perforated cardboard book for Barrel Organ.

Produced in collaboration with: Leon van Leeuwen - G Perlee Barrel Organs & Alejandro Matamala. The composition is divided in sections, played without a break, marked off by changes in key and meter, using simultaneous cross-related rhythmic Jazz improvisation intervals.

Inspired by the works of minimalist composers Steve Reich, Philip Glass, John Cage, Ryoji Ikeda, Julius Eastman and the DNA music research of Japanese American geneticist Susumu Ohno.
