cello + electronics duo project thing...

Ben Baker + Connor D'Netto // cello + electronics // making music + feeling all the feels

we are breathing is the duo project of American cellist Ben Baker and Australian composer/performer Connor D’Netto.

Ben and Connor met in mid 2017 at Bang On A Can’s annual Summer Music Festival at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art where the two were both artists-in-residence. After, the pair sought to collaborate on a project bringing together their various musical backgrounds spanning classical, folk and electronic music, their love of diverse musical styles from minimalism, electronica, alt-rock and jazz, and their passion and drive to create and engage in art not confined by genre. The result is a duo creating raw, tender and emotional sounds straddling across musical worlds. With Ben on cello and Connor on synths and live electronics, their music fuses Connor’s unique compositional voice, Ben’s virtuosic playing, both as a contemporary classical musician and a folk musician and improviser, with live signal processing and electronics creating complexly layered soundworlds.
