¿Aún escuchas mi voz? (Premiere)
This sound score uses a Cardenche song, originally from Durango, found among the archives of the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (INAH). This song is performed by a male a cappella trio. Cardenche is the name of a local cactus whose spines are incredibly painful to extract.

Latent encounters (Premiere)
Collaboration with: Justin Massey, Trevor Van de Velde, Akari Komura, and Mathieu Soucy.
Latency (noun): the state of existing but not yet being developed or manifest; concealment. This work has emerged from approaching the idea of latency not only in the digital sphere but also in its original interpretation related to physical condition. In fact, the original definition deeply connects with the progression of this pandemic since latency is defined as the state of a disease not yet manifesting the usual symptoms. These ideas prompted our creative process in composing scores that embrace asynchronicity of sound instead of striving for low latency solutions. Then, it led us to build an original instrument and a routing system that involves a collective Zoom call where each player is sending an individual input into an online browser audio broadcast system “Cleanfeed” to be processed through a randomly generated delay on MAX/MSP patch. During the live recording session, these MAX patch-generated delays were purposely not fed back into the Zoom call because we wanted to capture the idea of latency into the overall creative process where something is not yet being manifested but concealed.

Gotas de Rocío (Premiere)
The company Fisura arte escénico, created by the choreographer Brenda Gutiérrez, will premiere "Gotas de Rocío," for which I was invited to compose the music.
Since its choreographic creation, it is a work that sought to reflect on our identity and the search for balance between everything that surrounds us and what makes us up as people. It was challenging to compose the music under this reflection, but it is very worth seeing this work.

if (on); update (off); (Premiere)
This work is a micro-game for a single performer. The game aspect in this piece coincides with the video games' three main characteristics: a platform, an interface, and a goal. Micro refers to the short timing of the gaming experience, and the game's events occur on a single level. The goal is to move around the virtual map, find twelve yellow cubes and touch them to make them disappear in a time limit of six minutes. The music composition is the result of combining the sounds of the performer interacting within the virtual space and the music coming from the application.
Dec. 8 2020 - 7pm (CST)
Next Dic. 8th, at 7 pm (CST), Fabián Campuzano will premiere "Kaleidoscope," for tuba and electronics, within the II Contemporary Expressions Festival framework, Puebla, México.
This work was composed in homage to Ray Bradbury, based on his short story "Kaleidoscope" where a crew of astronauts are expelled from the ship due to a collision with something unknown. The entire team floats uncontrollably and with their oxygen reserves, they contemplate the beauty of the universe until they meet their inevitable death.
