Dear all,

I'm booking some dates for ELI KESZLER.

Availability: End August/early September

Born in Brookline, Massachusetts, and currently based in New York City,
Eli Keszler began playing drums at eight, and composing at twelve. Before
finding an interest in experimental music and improvisation, he played in
rock and hardcore bands; his work retains an intense physicality and
churning, often ferocious energy. He is a graduate of the New England
Conservatory, where he studied composition with Anthony Coleman and Ran
Blake. He has collaborated with Phill Niblock, Roscoe Mitchell, Tony
Conrad, Joe McPhee, Loren Connors, Jandek, and many others, and has
recorded more than a dozen CDs and LPs for ESP-DISK, REL, and PAN.

Keszler’s installations employ piano wires of varying lengths; these are
struck, scraped, and vibrated by microprocessor-controlled motorized arms,
giving rise to harmonically complex tones that are percussive yet
resonant. These installations are heard on their own and with accompanying
ensemble scores. Said Keszler in a NPR All Songs Considered interview, “I
like to work with raw material, simple sounds, primitive or very old
sounds; sounds that won't get dated in any way.” In addition, the patterns
formed by the overlapping piano wires allow Keszler to create visual
components that relate directly to the music, without having to use
projections or other electronic equipment.
His visual work often features dense, fine detailed drawing and painting
which use a variety of sources, from the surfaces of objects to large
scale spaces, and intuitive design.
His installations have appeared at Eyebeam (NYC), Boston Center for the
Arts, Nuit Blanche NYC and the Shreveport MSPC New Music Festival with
upcoming projects at the Tektonic festival in Reykjavik, Iceland, an
installation for the Gaudeamus Festival at the Centraal Museum in Utrecht,
and a performance at Barbican in London.

Have a nice week-end.
