– for live solo Cello
and recorded parts

Inferno is my first solo album for cello and is a musical interpretation of first part of Dante’s Divine Comedy. In the poem Dante is lead on a tour of Hell by the poet Virgil where he witnesses the sins of humanity, in all of it’s forms, being brought to justice through wild and creative punishments.

Dante’s vision of Hell is divided into concentric rings that descend deep into the Earth. At each ring a different sin is punished; the greater the sin, the deeper the ring, the deepest of which holds Lucifer at the centre of the Earth, the farthest one can be from Heaven.

All in all Dante visits twenty-eight distinct locations and I have tried to represent them all through music. Some are thematically linked, some stand alone, some paint a sonic landscape or mood, while others follow the drama of the text. As Dante invites the reader of his poem to join him on his pilgrimage, I too invite the listener of this music to follow that same road.

Mein Haus

Mein Haus is a violin/cello duo formed in London in 2015 that are now based in Berlin. Their music is a melting pot of everything from Penderecki through Battles and Faust to Arvo Pärt. They are interested in pushing the limitations of their classical instruments to noisy extremes and write music that is full of fast interlocking rhythms and dense harmonies. They manage to create a sound that appears much larger than the sum of their acoustic parts. Their live performances are highly energetic they play with intensity and aggression but always with an underlying sense of wry humour.
