Theo has submited the musical piece called Achumawi, orchestral variations on a Native Californian theme.
A self-taught guitarist, I have played the guitar since I was ten, and classical guitar for forty years. I am from San Bernardino, 60 miles east of Los Angeles, and grew up in southern California.
Although influenced by decades of playing the music of the master guitarist/composers, I became more and more drawn to non-guitarist composers like Mahler, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Ravel and other moderns.
These orchestral variations are based on my piece for solo guitar Puberty Chant. The original notation for the Achumawi melody appears among the ”songz” gathered by Jaime de Angulo in the 1920s in his research into the music of northern Native California. Other solo, ensemble and orchestral works can be heard on my website below..
