Story

The inspiration for UNDA Cellotrónica is how the voice of the cello may be enriched by the manifold options the electroacoustic world can bring. For Yvonne Freckmann, composing is the ideal way to explore ideas and sounds to engage the mind. For cellist Clara Rivière inspiration comes through experimentation with fresh ideas and living at the intersection of music, theater and multimedia performances. Together they form part of the group Klanktheater, dedicated to exactly their strengths.

UNDA Cellotrónica is the result of the four-year exploration of melding a classical modern cello sound with pre-recorded sounds that range from trains, to birds, to recordings of the cello itself. The album UNDA (in Latin, waves), is a compilation of the five exciting works to stretch your ears.

Two additional main collaborators join the team: mastering engineer Thomas Rex Beverly, and painter/graphic designer Karin Veldkamp designs the album art.

“Impacting! Innovative! Riveting! Amazing! The boldness of the journey I was taken on at this concert opened up new areas of aesthetic exploration for me.”

“Freckmann and Rivière’s Cellotrónica project is a remarkable blend of music, narrative, visual art, sound art, and theatre. The sheer variety of forms invented and explored by these artists would alone be captivating, but their consummate artistry makes the experience transporting.”
