Work Overview

In flesh is a work about body, contact and tactility.

The composition and electronics take on a Frankenstein-esque approach, composed entirely from samples of the cello; field recordings, which are stripped down, taken apart and put back together.

There is a gestural persistence and compulsiveness in the work, a desire for sound to envelop, enter, leak or seep through, to completely embody one's own skin.
