Simon Christensen's new movie project: Mail

Alongside his unmistakable instrumental works, Simon Christensen has in recent years found his stride writing pieces utilising video and projection. Most notably, in 2011, his collaboration with the filmmaker Bill Morrison, TRIBUTES – Pulse, with its sepia conjunction of deteriorating film compiled by Morrison and Christensen's pulse-led music, met critical acclaim and has since been heard worldwide.

The Danish composer's new project has seen him work collaboratively with the filmmaker Robert Schaller and performance artist Michelle Ellsworth on a smaller project entitled 'Mail'. The elusive new work, in three parts, for solo cello, electronics, and analogue film equipment is to be performed as a whole in Colorado at the Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center on November 23, with Trevor Minton on cello.
