After Dark: Zoë Keating

Connect with the unexpected: Explore art and music at the Exploratorium

Thursday, June 6, 2013 | 6:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m.

Exploratorium, Pier 15

Included with museum admission.

The Exploratorium’s After Dark returns June 6, 2013, with a special music- and art-focused evening featuring performances by acclaimed cellist Zoë Keating, and highlighting works by artists throughout the museum. Operating as a one-woman orchestra, Keating uses a cello and a foot-controlled laptop to record layer upon layer of sound in real time, resulting in intricate and breathtaking music that has been delighting audiences since she began improvising for late night crowds in her San Francisco warehouse in her twenties.

Keating is known for both her use of technology, which she uses to sample her cello onstage, and for her DIY ethic, which has resulted in the sale of over 60,000 copies of her self-released albums and a devoted social media following.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. in the Observatory.
