Celocity - Fitch - An inspired combination of acoustic cello and effects
A year in the making, Celocity crosses the boundaries of electro, acoustic and ambient music. Many of the tracks are simply cello, multi-tracked and processed with many different software tools. Others bring in electronic backgrounds that are hauntingly beautiful.
It was recorded in the newly converted, sea-view Fitchsounds studio overlooking the Cooley Peninsula, in the midst of the Boyne Valley in Ireland. Inspired by the ebb and flow of the sea, it also charts a journey into a new life of magic and creativity.
