Amazing. Zoë Keating was amazing. Layer upon layer of lush, hypnotic cello loops, rising and circling and fading away.

She has a piece called Tetrishead which was inspired by the similarities between fitting together the brightly colored blocks in a game of Tetris, and fitting together her musical loops to make a song. It was a joy to watch that Tetris mind at work, building music up out of scrapes and plucks and taps, out of droning deep bass notes and birdlike treble melodies.

The Famous Spiegltent was a great venue for her. Keating's image was reflected in the dozens of mirrors on the Spiegltent poles, fragments of cellist mirroring the fragments of music.

And she's adorable: smart, funny, dorky, beautiful, talented, and possessed of the cutest Canadian accent.

My only complaint was that it was over so soon. Even on the Spiegltent's terrible wooden chairs, the hour flew past.
