about

The tracks in Astoria came from a year-long project to produce an improvisation a week. They document not only my growth as a cellist, but my exploration of the electroacoustic possibilities of the cello. The year was filled with small triumphs, funerals, depression, and joy, punctuated with trips to Astoria, Oregon to recharge and recuperate.

The cello plays multiple roles in these tracks, from percussion to bass to contralto, layered together to form impossible ensembles through my use of looping, pitchshifting, and reverberation. Astoria is a confluence of lullabies, hymns, and chamber symphonies into a coherent and satisfying whole.
