Xmmash for five string electric Cello and real time electronic device. On the subject of electric instruments, it is too tempting not to succumb to the power and fascination of an amplified instrument. The clearest example is that of the electric Rock guitar of the 1970s, this phenomenon later influenced all genres of music and was crucial for the electronic treatment of many instruments, including acoustics instruments, even up for musical composition in general, enriching processes used in electric instruments providing an extensive palette of electroacoustic processing that today is still used and have become classic "effects". These processes were evident through pedals that were portable easy to connect and above all, very playful, in that the instrumentalist could combine them in a versatile dialogue with his instrument with total freedom, since the control of them is done by means of the feet of the same performer himself, being able, for example, to move the time slightly making the music more organic in an elastic, fun and personalized game. In this case we have an additional element consisting in the addition of an additional string in the cello, enriching and further expanding the sound palette of the instrument.
