Guillermo Gregorio
Given that he was born into a musical household in the musical capital of Buenos Aires, Argentina in the early 1940s, it came as little surprise to anyone that the cerebral and artistically inclined Guillermo Gregorio was drawn to jazz as a teenager. While he initially played Chicago-style jazz, exposure as a young man to the groundbreaking modern jazz of musicians like Ornette Coleman as well as 20th century classical music and early musique concrete inspired Gregorio to begin his career-long exploration of the boundaries of sound. His education in the visual culture of modernist design and architecture also had a profound effect on his work. During the '60s, influenced by the work of social critics, philosophers, writers, and visual artists, Gregorio turned away from public performance and began to experiment in his home studio, where he pursued improvisation, overdubbing, and assorted tape collages.
