Bringing together classical music and technological world of today, ecce cello celebrates sadness with an energetic pessimism, full of joy and humour. With a more typical energy from hip-hop or rock scene, since 1995 David Fernandez explores the powerful presence and sound of the violoncello filtered by his experience in dance, theatre and technological research. Using 3 tablets, a smartphone and an electric cello David builds an autonomous self-expression dispositive that challenges the limits of what’s possible using today’s technology. Ecce cello has published 2 CDs (Sunless 2011 and Pocket Rhapsody 2015), and is about to publish a third one.[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=3957596542 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small track=1645146788]
