SAN JOSE, CA — Zoë Keating, the well-known Canadian cellist and composer, will headline The Tech Museum of Innovation’s REBOOT:music LIVE! concert on Saturday, August 2. Keating will be joined by four other electronic musicians — Eskmo, Moldover, Nonagon and Rich DDT — as part of the closing event for The Tech’s exhibition, REBOOT:music, which ends its run August 17.

Keating’s mix of acoustic and electronic music — she plays the cello and a foot-operated laptop device — has captivated audiences worldwide. The artist’s DIY musical projects have attracted a wide following on social media despite the fact that she isn’t affiliated with any record label. View video of one of Keating's performances here.

The concert will also feature Eskmo, a Los Angeles electronic music producer; Moldover, known to the YouTube music community as “The Godfather of Controllerism”; Nonagon, performing alongside Colin Evoy Sebestyen with a combination of traditional and electronic music, mesmerizing designs and effects; and Rich DDT, who will play his ControlliTAR.

Before the concert, the artists will take part in a panel discussion about their inspirations and the technologies they use.
