Thanks for writing, Mark! I agree, Zoe really does a great job enhancing the natural beauty of the cello versus just using technology for technologies sake. Especially out in San Francisco, where Zoe lives, the entrepreneurial aesthetic has really blended tech, art and design. There are some fantastic collaborations and approaches where all of these things converge. Actually, Nathan Heller wrote a great piece in The New Yorker a couple of weeks ago in which he really picks apart the larger San Francisco culture Zoe is a part of. It's a good read!
