The idea of letting the cello play what it wants, instead of always forcing it to become what others say is “beautiful”, has been my approach in addition to traditional study. When I do this I ignore the immense historical baggage of the instrument and focus on a childlike fascination with sound.
All of the nine pieces are improvisations that were later edited and layered into abstract narrative compositions. They contain none of my usual amplified objects, electronics, or field recordings, only an acoustic cello in a room. Take a listen here.
