Wednesday 1 February at 7pm CET, Theresa Wong, American composer, cellist and vocalist, returns to Fabrica after 21 years for a concert-performance open to the public.
Fluency of Trees explores connection between the human being and the primal sentience of the natural world. The piece synergizes composition, improvisation, song forms, noise and harmony through a unique timbral merging of cello and voice.
The project was born from the investigation linked to the reworking of an instrument – the cello – and the materials of which it is made: wood, with a reference to the tree, and the strings.
According to the artist, “Examining harmonies, tunings and resonances between cello and voice is a vibrational act of research into new ways of reciprocal relationship with the environment that surrounds us”.
Theresa Wong, after studying and working in the field of design, she cam to experimental music during her residency as a designer at Fabrica in 2001. She holds an MFA in Music Performance & Literature from Mills College (USA) and is the founder of fo’ c’sle, a record label dedicated to adventurous music from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
She has collaborated, among others, with Long Beach Opera; San Francisco Asian Art Museum; Fondation Cartier, Paris; Café Oto, London; Europe Factory, Florence; Sydney Festival; The Lab, San Francisco; The Stone, New York City and with artists such as Sarah Cahill and Ellen Fullman.
