About this item
Helen Money, composer Alison Chesley, remains one of the most unique and versatile cellists today, her cello playing effortlessly moving from black metal to expansive dark ambient strings. She uses the cello to access and channel extremes of human emotion, employing extensive manipulation, as well as plucking and bowing techniques to summon an astonishing breadth and depth of sound. On her new album ‘Atomic’, Chesley pushes even further with daring minimalist arrangements that stand as her most intimate, direct and emotionally bare work to date. The breadth of ideas explored throughout give ‘Atomic’ a distinctive ebb and flow; an oblique narrative that conjures distinctive and palpable emotions without being prescriptive.
For fans of Emma Ruth Rundle, Big Brave, The Body or Black to Comm.
