Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad Hosts a Live Web cast and Web chat with this High-Voltage New Music Duo
“On Sunday, March 6 at 7 p.m., EST, Q2 presents a live audio Web cast of experimental musicians and technophiles Zoë Keating and Todd Reynolds in a sold-out concert from Greenwich Village’s (Le) Poisson Rouge. The evening is hosted by Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad who will interview the musicians on stage before joining Q2 host Nadia Sirota in the open online chat embedded below.
A self-described “professional avant cellist and amateur nerd,” Zoë Keating is that rare breed of classical musician who prioritizes a freewheeling and imaginative embrace of experimental technology. Her DIY approach to music-making has endeared her to millions; her diverse collaborations have deterred any efforts to pigeonhole her style; the one truth is that her multi-dimensional sound is perfectly in tune with the resonances of our digital age. Violinist Todd Reynolds is another musician whose artistry and desire to reimagine timeworn traditions have taken him into musical territory from Slowboys and his performing partner Michael Lowenstern; to the Meredith Monk Ensemble; to the music of Bang on a Can All-Star Evan Ziporyn.”
