Cellist Ashley Walters' first solo album features performances of six contemporary works for cello by composers Luciano Berio, Nicholas Deyoe, Wolfgang von Schweinitz, Andrew McIntosh, and Wadada Leo Smith.

The album serves as a reflection of the enduring musical collaborations Walters shares with these composers, and seeks to challenge the listeners perception of what the cello is capable of. Scordatura, microtonality, improvisation, and extended techniques transform the serene “swan”into a snarling, roaring creature, as sinister as it is beautiful.
