Tausendvierhundertsechzehn for Tenor and String Quartet (1416m³)
David Lamelas, Gavin Gamboa & León de Castillo: Performance

Long interested in liberating sculpture from the traditional ideas of mass and volume, David Lamelas conceived of Tausendvierhundertsechzehn for Tenor and String Quartet as a way for space to assume a central role for social interaction and as a catalyst for creativity. Music is both invisible and temporal, and with 1416m³ the artist and composer sought to sonically describe their effort to fill the architectural volume of a space over a period of me (the piece being named for the dimensions of the Oberlichtsaal of Kunsthalle Basel, where it was first performed). Los Angeles-based composer Gavin Gamboa and Mexican tenor León de Castillo collaborated on this situational piece with the Lamelas for his solo exhibition, V (2014). The three come together again with a string quartet from the Bob Cole Conservatory on campus, and the Austrian Marcell Rubin Quartet, to reimagine this live experience.
