After a months on hiatus in the COVID-19 pandemic, I find myself more ready to composer than ever. I’ve been very fortunate to work on several engraving and arranging projects during all this craziness, but now it’s time to get back to my own music!
I will be working on a series of modern cello miniatures (think bite-size music) in collaboration with cellist Eleanor Lee. Our goal is to explore all the sound possibilities of the cello by using alternative playing techniques (e.g. using a wooden dowel instead of a bow) in variety of combinations with established techniques for the instrument. Just how far can we push the boundaries? Stay tuned!
We hope these little pieces will prove to be of great interest to cellist, composers, and our fellow audience members! What good is a piece of music, without it’s listeners?
