Jeffrey Ziegler
Something of Life

Mostly cello with some electronics and field recordings. Some are a little more experimental, others a little more classical

*****1. (10:23) Quiet eerie strings, some quiet electronic buzzing and pings, all of a sudden dramatic violin melody develops echoes and devolves into electric guitar and cello. Dramatic, emotive, beautiful
2. (14:21) Xylophone, glockenspiel, lots of quiet percussion, cello, fractured samples of private conversations
**3. (4:54) Frantic cello bowing "if everything feels like it's under control, then you are not going fast enough"
**4. (8:19) Slow solo cello bowing like the cello part of a Philip Glass string quartet. Def much more classical and much less experimental
*5. (9:49) Slow tender cello, quiet electronics
6. (22:08) Quiet doors opening and closing, footsteps, elevator, winds up with cello and hectic street noise, guitar circular rhythm, xylophone, circular percussion under cello melody, midnight sonata, cello and drums get a little rocking rhythm going, long footsteps outre
