Say Cello To Zoe Keating
There are few things in this world that I love more than the sounds of the Cello.
Zoe Keating is one of my new favorite Cello artists. She is a highly accomplished classically trained Cellist/composer who has taken her skills and created her own style and technique of "avant-garde" music. She has played with Imogen Heap, DJ Shadow, and many others. She challenges what the classical world considers to be the correct and only way to play classical music (see her performance of Beethoven 7th symphony, 2nd movement) and "reclaims" it as her own. The piece she is playing above,"Escape Artist", is off her new album "Into Trees." You can download several of her tracks off this album from her official website HERE.
