Celloquacious: I Speak Through My Cello, is an original album release performance and production like you’ve never heard…or seen! Cellist, composer, and interdisciplinary artist Keely Mackey emerged as Celloquacious in 2019. She’s a solo artist, amplifying and looping her acoustic cello to create a virtual cello orchestra! On August 19, join Mackey along with dancers and movement artists for an album release performance at FUSION. Mackey wrote this album as a love letter to Nature in music form, as gratitude for the healing she experiences when she is immersed in nature’s elements. The album release is an avant-garde, interdisciplinary presentation incorporating dance and visuals to enhance the musical performance. Along with Mackey’s own macrophotography visuals, Dr. Jonathan Wolf of the nonprofit Fractal Foundation will project a live fractal in sync to Keely’s music. Movement artists will be featured in this live production, including flamenca dancer Carmen Valeria Montes, head of the nonprofit Casa Flamenca in Albuquerque, aerialists Summer Solon and Laura Cummins, and interpretive movement by Yoginis Erin Hansbrough and Marisol Brito.
