To Seth

This third piece / iteration / instance is the first with a live / acoustic instrument / source. Whereas the original electronic explores the gestural / embodiment limits of fixed media, here the cello reaches for a world of articulated transients / noises / textures / splices. Ideas are expand / shrank / distorted at the limit of recognition, to allow / free their essence from their broken shell.


Thanks to Seth Parker Woods for his faith, his talent, his enthusiasm and his patience; to Lydia Rilling and Andreas Pysiewicz for the TU Berlin session; to Alex Harker for his patient MSP support.
