“information Architecture and Classical Music”

Zoö Keating is my new hero.  I just can’t leave this music alone.  I’ve been listening to this for hours and am intrigued by the multiple talents of this woman.  And Yes!  She’s another Canadian…

Zoö Keating makes entrancing, hauntingly beautiful music using a traditional French cello, a MacBook, and an arsenal of audio-crunching software and scripts.

She’s one of a growing group of musicians who use computers to record snippets of music as they play. The computer records these snippets and then plays them back in loops, allowing Keating to create complex, layered compositions.

“My music is the fusion of information architecture and classical music,” Keating says in this Wired.com video. “The way that you problem-solve in the world of technology … really lends itself to problem-solving with the kind of music that I do.”
