Celloman presents Arpezzato: A new style of cello playing.

Celloman is the artist name of cellist and composer Ivan Hussey. The project has been active for over twenty years under various guises including an electric band, acoustic string trio, and solo cello, combining a unique blend of classical, jazz and world music, and in this time, he has released seven albums and has performed extensively across the UK and abroad including at major festivals such as Glastonbury, Womad, Sauti za Busara (Zanzibar) and Exit Festival in Serbia.

This entertaining and informative solo show is split into two halves; the first half discusses, through examples, the changing role of the cello in history, from bass instrument to melodic instrument. Here, the cello is introduced as a harmonic instrument, much like the guitar, through a new style of cello playing called Arpezzato, a combination of the words 'Arpeggio' and 'Pizzicato'. Playing examples taken from his 2019 album Arpezzato Cello, Ivan uses finger techniques imported from the world of rock/pop, blues and jazz and applies them to the cello.

The second half takes the same compositions and builds on them through the addition of bowed melody and harmony where Ivan will duet with a virtual version of himself, performing pieces taken from a brand new Celloman album entitled Cello Moods & Broods, released to accompany these solo dates.
