Info for Untitled for 7 Dancers



You never know what you’ve got until it’s gone. So goes the idiom describing our lack of appreciation for people and things until we lose them. And what about music? What about our experiences? Over a year into a pandemic, and I’m certainly missing live shows. It’s not that I truly enjoyed sitting on some wooden hard pews, nodding away close to midnight after a very long day, straining to capture a glimpse in the near-complete dark. And I definitely do not miss the spilt beer, the chirping of telephones, and the insistent clamour of talking over the audible tale. But I do miss the moment of music creation, its resonant forms, the player’s connection with the sound of their instrument, and, most importantly, the invisible conversation between the audience and the artist. These thoughts are renewed as I rewatch this video, where the British composer and cellist (and even a friend), Peter Gregson, sits on the stage and plays into the empty theatre, its hollow vacancy the sole witness to feelings expressed. For this piece, “Patina”, the same as the title of his upcoming new album on Deutsche Grammophon, Gregson zooms in on the instrument, stripping away at the layers of sound, until you are left all alone, surrounded by the inaudible absence. And when your mind plays a trick by filling the void, inventing the melodies no longer in music, you too become a performer, playing with Gregson along side by side, on the stage of this moment facing the future of the unknown.

Peter Gregson


Peter Gregson
is a cellist and composer "working at the forefront of the new music scene" (The New Yorker) Recently, he has premiered works by composers including Tod Machover, Daníel Bjarnason, Gabriel Prokofiev, Max Richter, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Steve Reich, and Sally Beamish; he collaborates with many of the world’s leading technologists, including Microsoft Labs, UnitedVisualArtists, Reactify and the MIT Media Lab.

Peter developed and was commissioned to compose ‘The Listening Machine‘, a data sonification of Twitter in collaboration with Daniel Jones and Britten Sinfonia for the BBC/Arts Council’s “The Space”, where it ran continuously between May-January 2013.

His debut solo album, ‘Terminal’, was commissioned by Bowers & Wilkins and launched in April 2010. A limited edition 10′′ vinyl was commissioned by Mute in May 2011, featuring new solo works for Peter written by Max Richter and Jóhann Jóhannsson and was released at the ‘Short Circuit’ Festival at The Roundhouse. In May 2012, Nonclassical released Gabriel Prokofiev’s ‘Cello Multitracks’, a cello suite written for Peter which the two have toured around the world.

'Lights in the Sky', his second studio album, composed for cello, piano, and analogue synthesisers, was released at Imogen Heap's 'Reverb Festival' in August 2014.

His third studio album, TOUCH, will be released on Sono Luminus in August 2015.

In demand for his work across major film and television soundtracks, Spitfire Audio developed a sample library of Peter's extended techniques and sounds from his blue, five-string electric cello, all recorded at Pixel, his studio in London.

The score to his first feature film, 'A Little Chaos' , directed by Alan Rickman and starring Kate Winslet and Matthias Schoenaerts, is available now on Milan Records.
