Listen: Eli Keszler releases new solo album 'Stadium'
After creating a score for an award-winning visual artist, collaborating via Laurel Halo, and being part of Oneohtrix Point Never's world tour, Eli Keszler is seemingly at the top of his creative surge.
The New York-based artist has now released his ninth solo album 'Stadium' via Shelter Press. Keszler makes an average drum kit sound like electronic textures with his nimble improv playing. Reflecting on his recent move from South Brooklyn to Manhattan, Keszler creates an almost film noir type of sound, featuring mesmerizing string and brass arrangements, spacious keyboard lines, and Keszler's ever-changing and groundbreaking drumming.
Eli Keszler will perform at Le Guess Who? 2018 (presented in cooperation with Gaudeamus) together with a.o. Art Ensemble of Chicago, Circuit des Yeux, Vive la Void, Colin Stetson, Paddy Steer, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Eartheater, Oliver Coates, STUFF., LYZZA, and many more.
