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.
