Reviewed - Zoë Keating

The Red Room, Berklee School Of Music, Boston

Friday night at the Red Room in Boston, we had the pleasure of catching a sold out performance of avant-garde cellist Zoë Keating. Keating uses a foot-controlled computer looping program to recreate her lush sound in a live setting. Her concise hour-long set was executed flawlessly, and with much concentration on the complex looping arrangements of her pieces. Keating is currently selling out almost all her live shows due to her desire to continue to play intimate venues. In this case, it paid off. The tiny room allowed her cello to fill the room with gorgeous harmonies. She ended her performance with an extraordinary rendition of the 2nd movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony. If you are able to ever see her live, jump at the opportunity.
