As a solo performer, Theresa Wong takes the listener into the molecules of the materials at hand. A relentless digging to unearth the raw vibrations of the cello and voice, her work draws upon the question: "how can I rediscover the core of the cello as wood and string and hair, or even simply as a tree?". In her personalized total art form centered around the voice and cello, a timbral merging gives birth to new acoustically synthesized sounds. Her solo performances have been included in the FOCO Festival in Morelia, Mexico, Cafe Oto in London, Fabbrica Europa Festival in Florence, Italy and The Stone in New York City.
