I wanted to take the instrument out of its classical ‘box’ and travel with it through beautifully crafted loops and overdubs, solo passages in songs and in samples, while of course exploring the exotic territory of improvisation. In short, a musical deviation off the well-chartered route of a classical cellist. Challenging both musically and logistically (french record label based in Paris, a recording studio in New York, and composers spread across America and Victoria’s east coast), this assembly of fantastic musicians and composers really inspired everyone involved and propelled this proJect to new creative peaks. These composers represent such unique musical scenes, many of which they’ve carved out for themselves while still sharing their place along the fault lines of today’s contemporary music. Founders and members of groups like the National, the Books, Clogs, Bang on a can, they really define a musical culture which amasses so many of the disparate influences of music that inspire me as a cellist and musician. The idea of commissioning brand new material, coming from so many musical vernaculars to feature the versatility and beauty of the instrument, gave each of us the opportunity to step outside of our familiar practices. Rooted in such varied musical scenes and styles yet united around the idea that this album was going to be a departure, bringing together an audience as diverse as the musical influences it represents. From le Gentil Garcon’s beautiful and unique conception of the album’s design and cover, to the musical offerings of these six extremely talented composers and musicians, i couldn’t be more proud to share with you my debut album.
