    Igneous electric cello

    A sophisticated virtual cello, recorded at three dynamic layers with three bowing positions and a host of "artisan" articulations. Over our seven month adventure, we recorded a comprehensive range of experimental techniques, to encapsulate the soul and searing talent of electric cellist, Peter Gregson. The perfect introduction to the fiery, powerful electric cello.
