To demonstrate the power of the Intel processors, Intel hosted a contest for musicians. Zoe Keating and her amazing cello work won a spot to play at CES (and maybe some other prizey type stuff too, I can’t remember). She’s live sampling and looping back to create layers and layers of sound, controlling it with the foot pedals.
Zoe is based in San Francisco and actively performs all over. She also has albums on iTunes. Check out all her amazing work. How’s that for using technology to create music!
