for Cello and Electronics (or electronics only)

A tessellation is created when a shape (triangles, squares, hexagons) is repeated over and over again covering a plane without any gaps. Tessellations surround us, from elaborate tile mosaics adorning buildings, the honeycomb structure of a beehive, to the pattern on the sole of your shoes.

The electronics in this piece take this idea of a repeating pattern to build a bigger picture. Very small snippets of sound are sequenced through grid like patterns, however the grid is in constant flux, so although there is a sense of repetition it is stretched and compressed, reordered and renewed, with variations in the sonic palette and irregular rhythmic shifts.
