Bodied Chambers was premiered by Seth Woods in Electric Spring, 2014.

He is pictured below with a steel mesh 'mute', chains, and other preparation during development at the Centre Intermondes in July 2013, and at Huddersfield University, Experimental Studio, September 2013.

Reprises of the work include Darmstadt 2014 and the Sound Kitchen Series (Gaîté lyrique), as pictured below.

In this example, Seth is using only his voice and body to excite the instrument. (All sound in the audio example emanates from the cello and Seth's body.)
