Dedicated to the dancers who inspired these improvisations, Cello Temple represents some of my favorite moments from hundreds of hours of jamming.


Recorded at VIDAM and Dance Spirit (Northampton), Prakasa Yoga Studio (Goshen), and the Movement Improv Jam (Cambridge).


The layered cello effect is made with electronic looping pedals. This allows me to record short phrases while playing and then add or play along with them. The dancers and I can hear the resulting loops and layers through speakers. On each occasion I also made a live recording of the complete improvisation. Later I made minimal changes. The only post-jam addition occurs in track ten, which I layered with surf sounds.
