The Artist and His Model
Cello and Digital Sound
The Artist and His Model melds the two disparate sound sources of the acoustic
instrument and the electronically conceived tape. There is a dichotomy between the
sequenced performance material and the performance by the live musician. Added to
this is a third part which is a recording of a musician performing while being guided by
a click track - thus a compromise between machine and live performance. The work was
written for Craig Hultgren and is recorded on Innova Recordings. The work won the 1999 Hultgren Solo Cello Works Biennial Birmingham Prize.
