We are honored to announce, that Keely's song, Out at Sea, won the 2020 New Mexico Music Award in the Ambient, Contemporary Instrumental category. Celloquacious is an artistic and musical concept of a cellist and composer, communicating through her cello. Keely plays solo on electroacoustic cello with live looping, so it ultimately sounds like she has a cello orchestra playing with her! Since Keely plays from her heart, this passion can be felt by her listeners. She believes that, "music unlocks dimensions that words themselves cannot utter".
Internationally award-winning composer, and pianist Elizabeth Capra, joins with award winning electro acoustic looping cellist, composer and inter-disciplinary artist, Keely Mackey, in the Delphi Project. In the genre of futuristic antiquity, there is nothing else like this duo! Neo-classical with an edge, this music ranges from haunting to driving, enchanting to upbeat. Creating a style that defies tradition, the Delphi Project creates incredible synergy and artistic fusion on stage and in their recordings. Book now!
