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.
