Bruno Bowden was part of the team at Keyhole, the company that built EarthViewer -- a groundbreaking (and addictive) piece of software that lets you fly smoothly over an image of the globe assembled from satellite photos, and then zoom in on your own house. When Google bought Keyhole, Bowden helped turn the software into the indispensable Google Earth. Recently, he's moved over to the Google Gadgets side, helping to build more gotta-have-it technology.
He is also an enthusiastic student of the new origami, as practiced by masters such as Robert Lang.
Rufus Cappadocia uses his cello to play the music he hears around the world, filtered through the music in his head. A dedicated musicologist, he has played and studied deeply in many genres, from Haitian voodoo music to Indian ghazal, from Celtic to Balkan. The rich, jazz-inflected sound he pulls from his instrument (which he started playing at age 3) is a passionate through-line in all his work.
Cappadocia writes, records, and plays live, both solo and in several groups -- including Bethany & Rufus (Bethany is Bethany Yarrow, the daughter of Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary) and the Vodou Jazz Ensemble.
