Ashram Ricardo Dal Farra

“Ashram” is a mixed piece for Mukha Veena and tape composed by Ricardo Dal Farra in 1991.

The work was commissioned by American composer, multimedia artist and virtuoso instrumentalist Joseph Celli, who performed the acoustic instrument on this version, recorded on 1996 (with Russell Frehling as recording engineer). All sounds on tape were produced processing acoustic Mukha Veena sounds.

The word “ashram” means rural refuge, and makes reference to the Guru’s (master) house where the disciple or student, live, work and learn.

“Ashram” was premiered on December of 1991 at the “Tulsa Artists Coalition” in Oklahoma (USA).
