The idea come from those experiences I have had with the cello my relationship to it has changed, and this change has also affected my technique and my way of playing. I have become more able to explore the sounds I create instead of the technique that I am using. Instead of playing the Tam- Tam Cello in the normal way for a cello, holding it in front of me, I sit in front of the instrument to play it. Both my hands are upside down from their normal positions, and although this limits the traditional cello technique it gives me access to various timbres that are not possible from the traditional cello position.
