Zoe Keating, avant cellist

June 24, 2011

Zoe Keating in the PT Studios

Zoe Keating is a classically-trained cellist. But she uses more than a cello and a bow to make music. She also uses a computer and a set of foot pedals to create musical loops and layers, improvising and recording on the fly. She recently joined host Fred Child in the PT studios for conversation and her unique brand of avant cello music. We'll hear her arrangement of the slow movement from Beethoven's Seventh Symphony.
