Description Britten for Body and Cello - Unspoken words is a sonified movement concert
conceived live between a dancer, cellist and sound designer.

The performed physical concert is based on sensitive listening, allowing bodily actions to influence, create and alter the final score. During the performance we are constantly altering between the musical and corporal spaces of existence trying to exist together in a sensitive balance between the corporal and musical expression. The performance is inspired by the original Britten Cello Suite No 1, Op 72 score, but expanded and altered into a modern sonic scenery with electronic sounds and devices.

Britten's classic composition is taken into new millennium by sensor technology assisted live human interaction and thematically letting the post II-WW era echoing in the created sounds.
