Medusa – Solo for Cello, Electronics and Resonant Objects
Making use of a sound amplification system distributed by different poils of the cello, Ricardo Jacint explores the possibility of fragmentation and sonic dispersion of his gestures in the body of the instrument. Throught the improvisations, the "explosion" of the cello is articulated with the listening of the acoustic space and the surrounding soundscape.
