Enrique Mendoza — Dread (2022)

Bass zither, accordion, and live electronics.

“Fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. Fear is the parent of cruelty, and therefore it is no wonder if cruelty and religion have gone hand in hand. It is because fear is at the basis of those two things. In this world we can now begin a little to understand things, and a little to master them by help of science, which has forced its way step by step against the opposition of all the old precepts. Science can help us to get over this craven fear in which mankind has lived for so many generations.” (Bertrand Russell) Russell's quote talks about the dread religion has brought upon humanity, and the musical work spirals around the underlying idea of a group of people imposing fears on others. ///| Born in Mexico City and based in Vienna, Enrique Mendoza is an electroacoustic music artist focused on acousmatic composition, live electronics, and live diffusion. His electroacoustic composition and performance utilize DIY analog oscillators, lo-fi mini-synths, custom software, 3D immersive music technology, and multi-channel systems. Enrique has received commissions, awards, and grants from Institutions and Ensembles around Europe, the USA, Asia, South America, and Mexico. He is currently pursuing an artistic doctorate at the Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität in Linz, Austria, where he is a Lecturer in Digital Music Techniques. His research topic deals with electroacoustic music composition for Hybrid Audio Diffusion Systems.
