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
Special thanks to Wendell Post for his help recording these pieces.
