I make music, both live and in the studio, by layering many tracks of acoustic cello. I love the sound of the instrument and try not to manipulate the original sound so much that it's unrecognizable.
I have 2 albums and one EP (and am working on a 4th album). I've also written music for several films, dance pieces and a play.
Into The Trees
I post snippets of what I'm working on right now and the stories behind each piece on Soundcloud.
To perform live, I use a combination of microphones and pickups attached to the body of the cello and record onstage using a foot-controlled computer that runs Ableton Live, SooperLooper and MidiPipe. It takes a lot of practice!
