“Selections from the Great Mexican-American Songbook”


Kelso Art Center

4301 Broadway St.
San Antonio, TX 78209

In the concept behind the series, this artwork has very little to do with “music”, but it does have to do with images and language, “the language of images,” if you will. I chose to do the work with/on sheet music, because years ago I acquired a stack of sheet music and figured eventually I could do something with it. I kept this stack around for about a decade as raw material until one day I went through them and found several bound volumes of music in the pile called “The Great American Songbook” or “American Songbook” I looked up on the internet the concept of the “American Songbook” and came across the Wikipedia entry “There is no consensus on which songs are in the "Great American Songbook Music critics have attempted to develop a "canon." From some perspectives, the Songbook era ended with the advent of rock and roll” So I figured that I could use this idea of an undefined list of music and create a “Mexican-American Songbook”.
