'Show me something new and I will begin all over again.'
Erik Satie
This work is not music in a conventional sense, it does inhabit that world, but in a new way. The cello is treated fundamentally, as a resonating body, transmitting sounds elementally. The bow on a string, the flux of weight, pressure, speed and angularity releases a myriad of complex sound phenomena. The juxtaposition of multiple sounds on adjacent strings creates fluctuating and rhythmical beatings. The detuning of the instrument increases its pitch potential and basso profundity. In combination with computer electronics these elements are multiplied, extended and enriched. Nerve Cell-0 is a joyous, ecstatic, exhilarating and epic vista of sound. It defies categorisation. Play it very loud.  
Anton Lukoszevieze

ZBIGNIEW KARKOWSKI

Zbigniew Karkowski is one of the most influential electronic music composers working today. Linking the worlds of modern composition and industrial music he is a pivotal figure in the development of advanced noise. Constantly on the road, he is a frequent performer on the geographical fringes of experimental music culture as well as a mainstay on the established festival circuit.

ANTON LUKOSZEVIEZE

Cellist Anton Lukoszevieze is one of the most diverse performers of his generation and is notable for his performances of avant-garde, experimental and improvised music. He is unique in the UK through his use of the curved bow (BACH-Bogen), which he is using to develop new repertoire for the cello. Anton is the subject of several films by the renowned artist-filmmaker Jayne Parker and he is also a member of Zeitkratzer. In June 2009 he was awarded the 'Millennium Star' medal, for services to Lithuanian culture, by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania.
