Composer's note: The cello has always impressed me as an instrument with lyrical vocal qualities.  In composing Lyric, I sought to capture that lyricism.  The computer, on the other hand, is an instrument capable of instant changes in character and mood.  In Lyric, I juxtaposed these two qualities in the musical dialogue between the cello and the computer.

This version the Lyric employs an interactive program in which the computer is listening to the cello and responding with musical decisions in real-time regarding musical gestures and timbre.
