This was a gift from the wonderful Dr. Vince. He had heard about her on WNYC's Radio Lab. Zoë is a cellist who has integrated looping and electronic effects into her live performance. It's truly interesting music: a mashup of classical and new age and even alt rock with a sense of psychedelia in parts. I'm familiar with looping as a listener (think Keller Williams, et al.) and as a performer and she really has a unique sound. The whole CD is standout, but Legions (War) and Tetrishead are my favorite tracks. Her story is interesting, but even if you ignore that and don't know anything about the cool technical aspect of the looping, it's still compelling music.
Pairs nicely with Belgian Abbey style beer, a nice fire, sunset.
Thanks again Vince!
