  CAP (Cellorhythmics Acoustic Project)
WCM (Working Classical Music) Orchestra
 

"Cellorhythmics Acoustic Project was a monthly series of 10 concerts, devised by James Hesford and the classical cellist Alfia Nakipbekova in collaboration with film maker/designer Chiara Ambrosio.

Each episode featured a new composition and a new instrument was added to the ensemble. As the series continued the group grew organically from a quartet to a small orchestra - WCM (Working Classical Music)Orchestra,

The concept of synchronicity and chance played an important part in the creative process. Like using found objects in sculpture, harmonic and rhythmic material, titles and even additional instruments were sourced from whatever presented itself as a “happy accident”. The theme for each Episode was derived from the title (“a found object”) of a new composition"
