An evening-length recital featuring French soloist, Séverine Ballon, with her interpretation of five adventurous works for violoncello and electronics.

“Electric Chair Music”, the working title for Brian Ferneyhough’s landmark Time and Motion Study II for singing cellist and electronics, was written in 1973-76. Already nearly forty years old, where is the medium of violoncello and electronics now? How is a younger generation of composers responding to this most traditional of instruments when confronting it with alien worlds of electronic sound?
