This duo started in 2014 with the idea to transform the acoustic instrument into a real electroacoustic one. Transducers, springs and microphones are attached to the cello which is then processed through electronic and tape. This CD comes from several hours of improvisations recorded in studio and reorganised to build six pieces of abstract electroacoustic music.
After studying the clarinet, Aude Romary has devoted herself since 1997 to the cello, and more specifically to improvisation and experimentation, orienting her work towards the search for any sound material extractable from the instrument. She evolves in correspondence with dance, text, painting and drawing, light, poetry and comic strips, but also in solo, in different duos (with Barbara Dang, Christophe Cardoen, Jérôme Noetinger
) or in the Ensemble 1, a vast collective of improvisers gathered by David Chiesa
