Body of Water (9 cellos) 2007

These 9 cello tracks were originally improvised by invitation against a piano track Stephen Vitiello recorded while on retreat in a cabin in rainfall in Nebraska.                 Cellos recorded and mixed by Garnet Willis. 

This recording reminds me of water. Water continually allows form to emerge of itself refreshed.

I recently offered a section of this piece as a guide for artist Elysha Poirier to enliven the images from my visual still score 'Dreaming in the Womb' 1998 (commissioned by Meet the Composer and Ione the curator of the Dream Festival) into animation, becoming 'Meridians'. This was part of the Still Listening project in Montreal, which invited selected composers to create 85 second compositions in celebration of Pauline Oliveros' 85 year.
