Duration: 7 minutes 10 seconds

Program note:
(from Greek ἀρτηρία (artēria), meaning “windpipe, artery”) are blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. In this electro-acoustic piece, which forms part IX of a larger piece for cello solo, electronics and visual performance, I have imagined this vessels, pulsating blood through the body. Formally the piece contains 2 “parts” building a sort of arch, or increase/decrease of blood pressure of you will. The first part is static in its character, with one sound with different microtonal changes in the 6 channels respectively. The second part, by contrast, is very varied with different information being sent through the ”arterias”, so to speak. All sounds are electronically produced and the whole sounds-scape is clearly electronic.

Recording: (stereomix)
