“These tracks result from experiments playing cello through a loop pedal and a rack mount fx unit straight to record. A little editing and processing has been done afterwards, but the initial loop layers and improvisation on top remain intact. The initial building of the loop is left out as in this case it is not interesting. What emerges is a search for and then a finding and uncovering of music. For a long time I dismissed improvisation (for myself) as a means of expression, it had a danger in becoming an intellectual exercise of knowing what chord of some esoteric progression that one was in and picking out notes by numbers rather than by gut reaction. In these tracks the rule has been not play something until I ‘feel’ it. An exercise in trying to strip back to some sort of musical honesty. I’ve resisted the temptation to perfect and hone, eliminate dodgy intonation and timing, as the music then will become something what it is not here, a document of when it first emerged into the world.”
Simon McCorry, 2015

Arell is proud to present 'When We Walk Side By Side What Chance Will We Meet?' a stunning solo cello work by composer and sound designer Simon McCorry (aka Amonism).
Simon's beautifully played and deftly manipulated cello creates a hypnotic and often playful soundscape of mesmerising loops and lush melodies.
