Cello & Electronics
This concert presents a range of pieces for solo cello and electronics. Each piece places the cello in conversation with an altered version of itself. Each work differently approaches the dialogue between the live instrument and technology, via transformation, replication, repetition, and amplification. The soloist variously interacts with expanded, manipulated cello sounds, followed by samples, or accompanied by an ensemble of pre-recorded cellos. With the exception of the Bach prelude, the works on this concert were all written after 2003.
