WORK for CELLO SOLO
This is really two works in one: it can be performed as a duo for cello and percussion (see separate listing) or as a version for solo cello.
The cellist Rohan de Saram initiated the idea for me to write a work for Cello and Percussion, with a second version just for solo cello. The addition of the percussion (marimba, drums, other instruments) has afforded me the opportunity to look at the same musical material from a new standpoint and create an ‘enlarged’ version. The duo version lasts somewhat longer than the solo version.
Projection of two further versions: In the more distant future, I see a possibility of yet another version of the work: cello with flute, and cello with live electronics, perhaps with a view to a much larger work for multi-media involving additionally voice, a second cello, electronics and film/video projection.
