Humanoid – Cello and Electronics
Instrumentation: solo cello and prerecorded electronics
Duration: 14 minutes
Commissioned by Manhattan Chamber Players, Arts on the Ave., International Contemporary Ensemble, Rachel Mercer, San José Chamber Orchestra, and Astral Artists
In the first segment “Like an Automaton,” the cellist responds to glitchy machine sounds, from cars racing by to electrical surges and robotic talk, in a song and dance of technology and cello.
The second, slower section is eerie and wildly expressive, weaving disparate textures and ghostly drones with vocal effects and heartbeats.
This dissolves into the final section, in which the cellist is pushed to the virtuosic edge alongside a rocking drumbeat and zany sound effects.
Global News covers Fung’s return to Edmonton for the Canadian premiere of Humanoid: includes a rare interview with Vivian’s parents as well as Vivian herself.
