about

This is the audio from a short film I made with video artist Jason Akira Somma. Please watch the video on youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEYYK0C4oFE&feature=youtu.be

This video features myself on electro acoustic cello and electronics, and the video art of Jason Akira Somma. It is a live performance, what you see and hear is exactly as it was. I process my acoustic cello through a chain of electronics pedals and samplers, much in the same way Jason processes his video camera feed. In our work together we try merge the sound and visuals by anticipating each other and a rigorous improvisation practice. The title refers to the colors this music creates in my mind when I play. I have synesthesia and have always directly related sound to color.
