Ernesto Diaz-Infante: Ucross Journal
Title: Ucross Journal
Label: CD Baby

Ucross Journal is a collection of improvisations for solo piano by San Francisco-based composer Ernesto Diaz-Infante. The Ucross Journal is comprised of 25 short pieces, written one each day the composer was in residence on the Ucross Foundation Ranch. Each daily entry bears the composer's impressions of that particular day. The Ucross Improvisations are a series of five free improvisations, based on the journal material. Born in Salinas, California, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, is Chicano (of Mexican descent). He received his MFA in Music Composition from California Institute of the Arts (studied with Wadada Leo Smith and Stephen L. Mosko) and has created musical compositions that span a broad perspective: transcendental piano, noise, avant-garde guitar, field recordings, lo-fi four-track manipulations, and experimental song. ED-I has performed throughout Europe and the United States, and his music has been broadcasted internationally. He has recorded more than 15 CDs of music and collaborated with numerous musicans. In 2000, his composition, I/O (for chamber ensemble), was performed by the California EAR Unit. He has been awarded residencies at the Centre International de Recherche Musicale (CIRM) in Nice, France, The Millay Colony for the Arts, Villa Montalvo, The Ucross Foundation, among others. He runs Pax Recordings record label which is dedicated to the documentation, preservation, and contagion of music from the margins of our culture and psyches. He lives in San Francisco with the filmmaker/video artist Marjorie Sturm and their son and daughter.
