Lane Series presents: Zoe Keating
One of the world’s most iconoclastic and sought after composers and performers, Zoe Keating plays truly original music: her concerts are an incredible journey through layers of sound, extraordinarily produced by one person, one acoustic instrument, and a computer. She is known for both her use of technology – which she uses to sample her cello onstage – and for her DIY approach, releasing her music online without the help of a record label. Keating composes for TV, theater, film, and dance. She composed, along with collaborator Jeff Russo, scores for the A&E series The Returned and for WGN’s Manhattan, a drama about the making of the atomic bomb. Her songs are used as bumper music for NPR’s Morning Edition, as the theme music to OnBeing, as the thinking-music of the Sherlock Holmes character on CBS Elementary, and in countless films, commercials, TV shows, and documentaries.
