Notice :

- To know what you’re going to draw, you have to begin drawing. : Brasaï, Conversations with Picasso -
In Xylography for solo cello and electronics the performance begins with the cello turned backwards, a blank surface upon which the cellist starts to draw. The near-silence is projected around the concert space by a network of contact microphones, then analyzed by the computer to attempt an improvised response. The cellist in turn responds to this computerized noise improvisation through a score inspired by live improvisations of several cellist collaborators. This game of imitation continues with a broadening repertoire of sounds, finally coming to rest on the detuned fourth string, from which the performer elicits a flickering spectrum of harmonics and multiphonics. Xylography follows Graffiti, premiered by Seth Woods, and is dedicated to Séverine Ballon and Pierre Morlet.
