#253 Javier Álvarez

Mexican composer Javier Alvarez uses his travels to create eclectic electroacoustic works using influences from Mexico to Cuba, the Caribbean to Korea. 

Composer John Adams said the music of Alvarez “reveals influences of popular cultures that go beyond the borders of our own time and place.”
