 Six Cello Pieces - Vernon Cyrenius David (C)2012

6 pieces for cello was composed in 2012 . It consists of three solo works for cello alone each followed by a free interpretation for prepared cello. The preparation was simple, small metal claps were attached to the strings close to the bridge. Being the performer as well as the composer I navigated my way through the new versions reading the score of the original but improvising on what had now become a very different instrument. The influence of Cage is apparent.

Artist Suzanne Lomanto has made a video using one of the pieces. It can be seen using the link to "Giant Open Air".
Special thanks to Wendell Post for his help recording these pieces.
