I’ve been listening to a lot of cello music lately, and I was considering throwing my hat in the ring for a week of guest DJing at the WGOM featuring some cello music, but then I realized I have my own website, and I could just have my own cello week. So rather than competing with the WGOM music video of the day, think of this as a complement.
Cello Week rolls on with Zoë Keating, playing one of her compositions that will (hopefully) appear on her upcoming album. Whereas yesterday featured seven recorded cello parts, Keating creates her recorded parts as the piece evolves using a loop machine. I think the effect is really cool, and I’ve been a fan of hers for a while now, and it’s some of the more unique cello music out there.
