The dance project In-I starring Akram Khan and Juliette Binoche continues its world tour – taking in venues from Beijing to Sydney. I’ve worked with Akram for a number of years now, as a cellist and writer. Our previous project together was Sacred Monsters in which he partnered Sylvie Guillem.
My score for In-I uses lots of multitracked cello, prepared piano and electric cello as well as samples of Juliette’s voice which is, to say the least highly lyrical.
I promised I’d put the score online – so here it is!

I may make these files downloadable if possible – let me know if that’s preferred.
The show has a truly exceptional design team in artist Anish Kapoor and lighting designer, Michael Hulls.
Michael has recently been working with the genius Robert LePage and is (to my mind) the Howard Hodgkin of the illumination world.
Here are some highlights from the show presently on youtube:
