Tuesday Evening Melody: “Optimist” by Zoe Keating
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
This evening’s instrumental comes to you courtesy of Jad Abrumad via Radiolab’s blog:
“…on our last tour (Symmetry), Zoe would often play this piece, Optimist, which she wrote for her son Alex when he was negative four months old. Every time, the audience fell into a trance. Those are the moments from the tour I really remember, getting to sit quietly on stage and watch the audience watch Zoe.”
It’s hypnotizing and makes for a nice break in the day.
