Meditation for Cello & Voice

Meditation is an exercise in awareness and focus. A cellist plays a fundamental and sings concurrent overtones above the pitch. The distinction between cello and voice occasionally blurs. The performer contemplates the depth of the harmonic series and the player’s own physical interactions with it to produce a variety of timbral effects. Extended techniques are not necessarily the goal of the exercise but rather an appreciation for the role of overtones in changing our perception of tone quality. The work strategically fits in an inclusive range that makes it suitable for nearly every voice type.
