Event Details

The Ground Beneath Us 

The island of Australia is a flourishing multi-cultural nation and home to one of the oldest surviving musical cultures in the world.  The contemporary mindset that juxtaposes the timeless expanse of the Australian landscape forms the backdrop for the musical explorations of guitarist/composer Anthony Garcia.  Born in the United States, with time studying, living and working in Australia Southeast Asia and Mexico, Garcia’s approach to performance weaves the threads of his diverse cultural experience through a tapestry of original compositions and improvisations for solo guitar including multi-instrumental processed soundscapes for Thai phin, electric and acoustic guitars. The compositional process underscoring this project evolved from research into improvisation practice carried out at the University of Tasmania between 2011-2015.

Bio 2016

From the experimental music scene in New York to performing early music with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra acclaimed guitarist/composer Anthony Garcia is a unique voice in the Australian guitar scene.  Performing throughout Australia, China, Thailand, Japan, Mexico and the United States both as a soloist and in collaboration with creative artists across range of fields Garcia’s ever-evolving musical landscape embraces diverse cultural connections and contemporary experimentation.  His compositions encompass an eclectic range of styles and approaches with particular emphasis on works that build cross-cultural connections taking the guitar into new musical domains.  His PhD, awarded in 2015, followed extensive research into improvisational practice and is currently underpinning the development of a new guitar program at the University of Queensland, the establishment of the music and meditation program Convergence: the science, spirit and art of compassion with psychologist Dr. Stan Steindl and Sounds Across Oceans, an organisation dedicated to researching and promoting intercultural collaboration and new modes of practice in music education.  This evening’s recital will feature a selection of original compositions and improvisations by Garcia and the premier of the Native American inspired Black Elk for steel-string guitar.  Anthony would like to extend his gratitude to luthier Remi Garcia for the loan of the beautiful instrument that features in this composition.
