‘Remember, I am’ is a journey towards ownness, a weaving of threads, embracing of death, dissolving of illusions, traditions and norms, the breathing in of life for all it has to offer, an intimate exposé of fallen layers leading to an unremarkable revelation; the intimacy and fragility of the human voice, my own imperfect voice.
This work represents an unmasking, a courageous and poetic act, as I’m choosing to be seen, truly seen.
And so I present this live studio recording of ‘Remember, I am’, a moment in time, mid stride towards that which I seek. An example of Acoustic Live Looping that crosses into the indefinable, with compositional craft and integrity that enriches the live looping genre via the creative exploration of what can be achieved when the music ‘must’ unfold at a rate of one new sound / phrase at a time. All this whilst gently subduing the new technology into a transparent tool, so that the natural sound of the cello and voice remain completely in focus.
‘Remember, I am’ is a fully notated work for Solo Cello, Laptop and Midi Foot Controller (to be performed live with no pre-recorded audio). The cello, my constant companion, is a 130 year old French cello given to me by my late father. I tour exclusively via solar / human powered bicycle and public transport, an act of my deep respect for nature. I neither drive nor fly.
