Jeffrey Zeigler, cello

A concert presenting new music by celebrated composers. Written for amplified cello and electronics, all pieces are performed by world-renowned cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, long time member of Kronos Quartet, cellist for John Zorn, Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, and many more. The endeavor was co-curated by Zeigler and composer-bandleader Graham Reynolds. Paired with scientists of their own choosing, all the composers commissioned created music inspired by and reflective of the scientist’s life and practice.
