The piece is the first work in which I adopted the formal proportions and organic unfolding of the spiral to shape multiple dimensions of the music. This experimentation with musical form has influenced subsequent works. 'Solo for Cello' has been heard at the ICA in London (Philip Shepherd, 1995), the ACLFestival in Taipei (1998) and the Purcell Room in London (Robin Michael, 2005) and on mathematician's Marcus du Sautoy's Private Passions in Radio Three.
