I performed new work for cello and live electronics at Richmond Adult College concert in October 2019. A collaboration with U3A writers group at the college, in aid of the Portcullis Trust. The concert Age / less was with Richmond New Music Group where I was invited to collaborate with the participants on new work exploring the themes of ageing.
My work featured a sound recording of poem called “The Woman in the Winged Chair” by Jean Lambert, along with pre-recorded and live processed sounds with visuals by Amy Reid.
I was delighted to be invited to talk at the Technology in Music Performance symposium at Birmingham Conservatoire on December 3rd with Tom Davis about our work including the Feral Cello project, and my recent explorations with my cello and electronics set up. We talked about our collaborative process then performed in the afternoon concert.
