Almost Human

“Almost Human” describes a hybrid performance of cello and prosthetic digital instrument. Cellist/mover/researcher Seth Woods is interested in the analysis of the instrumental ges- tures used in cello performance and the use of this analysis both for pedagogy and as material for the development of an extended personal gestural repertoire. This composition by Ian Hattwick for prosthetic instruments, cello and electronics is informed by extensive work with dancers, and Woods’ behavioural and physical gestures.
