Dichroic Light (2011) – Cello and Live Electronics


Dichroic Light is the result of a three-month collaboration with the cellist performing tonight, Lydia Whittingham. I would like to thank her for spending so many hours practicing and rehearsing in the studio to carve the piece into its final form.
In my music I have recently become interested in resonance and overtones. The electronics in Dichroic Light aim to magnify these often overlooked sounds within the cello.
