Notes on this piece
Inspired by a series of short stories by Nabokov, "Very Sad Ending" treats the idea of a protagonist obstinately trying to accomplish a task but to no avail. Through his repeated efforts he slowly runs out of energy, thus furthering himself from his goal. Though this image may initially seem frustrating, it is actually quite optimistic, even comical, as the knowledge that one is doomed to fail actually allows great liberty.The use of electronics was conceived in such a way that the performer and electronics play equally important roles. At first, the electronics orchestrate or color the cello part, creating a "super-instrument" by extending the cello's capabilities. The electronics then slowly break away from the cello, creating conflict and interruptions, and bringing the piece to its end.
