At Heriz Music: Burlingame, 94010
Composer and guitarist Felipe Gómez has collaborated with choreographers, visual artists, and theater directors: “Imagenes Sobre el Tiempo”, 2004 (music-dance piece), The Axolotl, 2005 (animation film based on a short story), “Yerma”, 2004 (commissioned by the Lewis & Clark College Theater Department). Mr. Gómez’s music has a magical quality inspired by stories, myths, and rituals that depict a contact with the unknown. The magic is reflected in his instrumentation, which includes prepared guitar, strings filled with portamentos and glissandos, flutes from Peru, and unusual instruments such as one made with the metal shelves from a refrigerator. In addition to composing, Mr. Gómez is actively performing his own music and classical, jazz, and Flamenco guitar. His performances include a variety of weddings and especial venues including Portland Jazz clubs Billy Reed’s and Jazz de Opus. Mr. Gómez has privately studied classical guitar with Scott Kritzer, jazz guitar with Scott Pemberton, and Dan Balmer, contrabass with Larry Zgons, and Indian tabla with Nisha Joshi and Douglas Scheuerell. Mr. Gómez has a Bachelor in Arts with emphasis in Music Composition and he is currently finishing his Masters degree in Music Composition.
