 Avant-garde cellist Janel Leppin crosses genre boundaries in her live performance work, Her Tail Was Cut in Two.  Adapting her sound with electronics, Leppin winds through a variety of territories, showing where she has been in her extensive musical training as well as where she is going. The suite brings out her versatile interests in which she composes for analog equipment, alongside acoustic and electric instruments, to create soundscapes interwoven with jagged contemporary jaunts and turntable collage, dream-pop vocal works, Persian classical glimpses, and psychedelic reveries.
