Zoe Keating Performs at ETech 2009

One of the many highlights of the Emerging Technology conference was the Wednesday evening performance of Zoe Keating: “Using a 17th Century Instrument to Create the Music of the 21st Century.”

Zoe uses a cello and a laptop to make beautiful multilayered music. She plays with herself.  It’s loopy.  Very cool.

Excuse the rough camera work up front – it was shot on a tiny Flip camera – and it gets much better a couple minutes in when I get to the closeups.

  1. This is great! Eveerything I like about “classical” music. When I zone out on my guitar/banjo my wife says I am “playing with myself”, too. And it feels almost as good, sometimes better.

  2. Brian, if you recorded this yourself on a flip camera, I can’t imagine how good it was in real time. Can’t stop watching it. Thank you!

  3. Thanks for posting this video! Nicely done. I agree, her performance really was one of the highlights of the show. The mashup with the laser imagery added another, unexpected layer to the experience.
