Today we’re listening to Zoë Keating, a Canadian-born cellist and composer based in Vermont. Like last week’s rec Grandbrothers, Keating uses one instrument to generate an entire orchestra’s-worth of sounds. 2010’s Into the Trees demonstrates the full range of the cello, achieving cinematic excitement on some tracks and nostalgic ambience on others. 2005’s One Cello x 16: Natoma does the same thing and leans more into harmonics.
Have a really nice Wednesday.
