Will human musicians be replaced by AI? Watch and listen as cellist Yves Dhar goes “bow-to-bow” onstage with holographic AI cellist A.G.N.E.S. (Automatic Generator Network of Excellent Songs) in this groundbreaking work by Emmy-winning, Grammy-nominated composer Adam Schoenberg that features cello, halldorophone, electronics, orchestra, and holographic projections. Cutting-edge yet with that familiar orchestra feel, this cinematic crowd-pleasing work is an experience not to be missed.
For far too long, solo cello has leaned on Bach suites and enigmatic 20th-century works. With Press 1 for Cello, cellist and producer Yves Dhar curates a thrilling evening of music celebrating all things cello at the touch of today’s audiences.
From purely acoustic pieces to those supported by electronics and visual projections, the showstopping program features works specially written for Dhar by acclaimed living composers, with a few favorites from past composers. It culminates in the groundbreaking solo version of Adam Schoenberg’s Automation, a double concerto pitting the human cellist against holographic AI cellist A.G.N.E.S. (Automatic Generator Network of Excellent Songs). You’ll come for the weeping melodies and leave with jaw dropped wondering, “Was that actually played on the cello?”
Program is curated specially for each venue, presenter, and audience. Available as 60 minutes with no break, or 80 minutes with intermission.
