MARIEL ROBERTS CELLO
My new album Armament is out now!
Order it now or stream from Bandcamp, Apple Music, Spotify, and others.
"Mariel's solo album fuses her cello with gritty yet somehow dazzling electronics. The album is called Armanent because, Roberts says, “We're living through times in which so much culture is being weaponized, turned into instruments of violence”. The tortured soundscape ... is somehow both a revelation of that weaponization and a catharsis."
My album release performance from Roulette is still up-
take a listen here! Featuring Brian Chase and Mario Diaz de Leon.
My performance for Miller Theater's "Live from Columbia" is now up! The program, which you can view here, includes "Spinner" by George Lewis, one of my own compositions, and excerpts from the beloved sixth Cello Suite by J.S. Bach.
The Library of Congress has commissioned a series of 10 new works from composers across America in The Boccaccio Project, inspired by a similar literary effort in the mid-14th century by Giovanni Boccaccio.
