Electric Cello

by Sarah McSweeney on June 27, 2011

A friend of mine turned me on to this incredibly talented cellist and composer, Matthew Schoening.  I’ve listened to this particular piece many times over and continue to be touched by his artistry, feeling, presence, and creativity.  Matthew uses a pedal to loop himself playing the electric cello in 7/8 time.  The orchestration is beautiful, the way he starts with rhythm, adds beautiful but unexpected melodies, taking the loops in  and out as he plays.  Check it out!
