Nick tells Slipped Disc: I originally was thinking I’d just send the video to a few friends and family and it would be funny because I was wild enough to bring a cello out into a snowstorm. But it totally morphed into something else. I amused myself when I said “Peg Slip” in the middle. I didn’t realize the sense of peace that would be conveyed through the performance and video. It’s by no means perfect playing… I haven’t played that cello in years. It was just a cheap instrument that I bought for $850.
