About Eli Keszler
New York-based composer and visual artist Eli Keszler is known for his inventive approaches to drumming as well as his large-scale sound art installations. Informed by free jazz improvisation in addition to hardcore punk and experimental noise, his percussive techniques include rapid, hummingbird-like drumming and abrasive, feedback-heavy deconstructions. Active as a recording artist since the mid-2000s, his discography includes collaborations with Ashley Paul (as the duo Aster), Joe McPhee, and Oren Ambarchi and solo works such as Cold Pin (2011) and Stadium (2018). Keszler's work has been commissioned by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, ICE Ensemble, and So Percussion. He has also performed and recorded with David Grubbs, Laurel Halo, and Oneohtrix Point Never. His first original soundtrack, for the horror film The Scary of Sixty-First, appeared in 2021.
