I Closed My Eyes… And Saw Myself Running (Altered Version) Henry J. Ng

The German film Lola Rennt, presents us with a problem and three different solutions where each subsequent solution becomes more successful.

The problem presented here is the interaction between the live instrument and the tape. It seems that mixed media pieces are less successful if the live instrument and tape are in two distinct sonic worlds.

I decided to write a piece that takes on the form of the film, where the third solution is the most successful.

All sounds are derived from the cello.
