Cello Powder

A project by Nikos Veliotis to record the entire sonic range of a cello (this means all the playable notes of a cello, including quarter tones, laying between two 'quantized' notes such as C and C#) in drones, for an hour (each note separately), and then combine them all together in a unique audio file.

What's most intriguing is the performance that will be held in Glasgow on March 9. The cello , after the live performance of the project, "will be destroyed (turned into power)" as the info on Nikos Veliotis' website reads, and will be put into 100 jars (250ml each one). The jars will be sold along with the album.

The audio file and the unedited video file of the performance will be available for free download from the website.
