my alma mater Berklee College of Music in Boston asked me to contribute 3 études to an upcoming alt-cello book which will be used in their curriculum. i was also asked to record these etudes so this students will know how it should sound.. what they didn't ask me to do was to make extended epics of wild improvisation and experimentalism filled with kazoo solos and owl lessons and nintendo sounds- but that's just what happened. all the sounds you hear here are cello, vox, and kazoo, through some filters, with occasional doubling. but no layering of parts or harmonizing (except for a couple small vocal parts), just solo cello from marstoblark.

i get a kick out of imagining serious and overwhelmed young music students hearing this and being filled with ???!!! and WTF-ery
