for solo cello and electronics
2012, 17 minutes
This piece plays with the sound of the cello, modifying it and altering it in a variety of ways, so that the listener becomes unsure of what is the cello, and what is the electronic sound. While it’s not a literal re-creation of the experience of an auditory hallucination, in which a person ‘hears voices’ speaking to them, the piece is inspired by the nature of this experience.
