Mud Nest Signals in the making... by Theresa Wong

 I'm in the final stages of preparing 'Mud Nest Signals', my first string quartet - written for Del Sol Quartet in honor of their 25th Anniversary. This piece explores color, gesture and sound as a contemplation on what pure sensing felt like before we could speak. The piece is constructed in a 25-toned octave (in extended just intonation), and will include the quartet member's voices, a video trio of backup singers and myself on cello, voice and video projector. The quartet's 3-day festival program will be a treat all around!  http://delsolquartet.com/wholesolfestival/

Kansas City Art Institute by Theresa Wong

 Thoroughly enjoyed a week residency at the Kansas City Art Institute with Ellen Fullman, where we worked with Dwight Frizzell's sound art students and the improv ensemble led by Paul Rudy from the UMKC Conservatory. My stay culminated in a performance of Harbors (for cello and Long String Instrument) and several pieces with the students. What a treat to connect to all these young artists in Kansas City - I also have something for the architecture there - amazing old buildings from the late 19th Century and 1930's...hope to be back soon!
