Andrew Maz
(Guest Artist)

Tenor Vihuela

"Baylado" CD and tour

Andrew Maz received a D.M.A in Early Music at USC Thornton School of Music, specializing in music of Medieval and Renaissance Spain. At USC, he learned to play the lute, the vihuela, tenor viol, and the cittern. His studies concentrated medieval song cycles such as the Cantigas de Martin Codax and the Cantigas de Santa Maria. He formed his own group, Ensemble Vigo, to further explore and perform this music. His thesis on the 16th-century Spanish Villancico earned him a Masters in Musicology from UCLA. He has done extensive research on the vihuela repertory, particularly the settings of Romances and Villancicos. Andrew’s instrumental studies also include ten years of classical guitars studies with Pepe and Celin Romero.

Andrew also studied composition with Brian Ferneyhough during his undergraduate years at UCSD. He soon discovered that his interest was primarily in electronic music. This led to his studies with Rand Steiger. He also explored microtonal music with John Fonville. Andrew was strongly drawn to minimalist composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass. At the same time, he was fascinated by the music and electronics by Morton Subotnick.

Andrew is currently working as a sound engineer for several film projects. He has engineered and produced several albums and runs an independent record label. His present fascination is studying the effects of technology and has it has changed the creation, distribution, and perception of music.
