Excerpt from concert film of cellist Bela Emerson in Brighton. By processing her electric cello, Bela Emerson produces a whole host of colours and textures. Improvising into a sample and loop system allows her to build up layers of melodies and rhythms that twist and weave through a number of distinct sections that make up each piece.
Threshold (excerpt: Opening Ground): Last Bus's 2009 documentary about artist Marco Crivello contains the following sequence of a developing painting, scored by Bela Emerson.
