Live performance by Invert (Helen Yee, violin; Chris Jenkins, viola; Chris George, cello; Steve Berson, cello) (Irene on the left)
 
Invert, the string quartet that flips the usual instrumentation from two violins to two cellos droped by for a live set. Invert's members also defy typical classical tradition by being firmly rooted in rock, jazz and world musics. The NYC-based quartet's influences are reflected in their compositions, which range from pieces evocative of soundtracks from Expressionist cinema to driving melodic works that often feature open sections of improvisation.

Live performance by Zoë Keating
 
Zoë Keating is a bi-costal member of a very different string ensemble, the ladies cello society,Rasputina. based in San Francisco, Zoë has a new solo thing, cello X 16, an extravaganza for that most darkly-expressive string instrument. Her stage show is a lovely incorporation of lush overlays of multiple cello loops and stark photographic backdrops. Zoë's new album, "Natoma," is available through her website and she's currently touring with Invert.
  -"Tetrishead"
  -"Sun Will Set"
  -"Walking Man"
  -CD: "Fern"
 
David Poe  "Love is Red"   Options Love is Red  7Twenty
