Eli Keszler

Friday, May 5 2017 at 22:30h @ Theatre &TD, Zagreb

Eli Keszler is an American percussionist, composer, and visual artist based in New York City. Known for creating complex sound installations involving piano wire and other mechanisms to accompany his live performances, the shows sometimes involve visual elements such as Keszler’s drawings, diagrams, screen prints, and writings.

In 2012, Pitchfork wrote that “Keszler deserves recent attention for his large-scale sound art installations, which not only force musical ideas to interact with an acoustic environment but, in turn, for flesh-and-bone musicians to interact with both of them.”

Keszler has also toured or collaborated with artists such as Tony Conrad, Jandek, Loren Connors and the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, Oren Ambarchi, Rashad Becker and David Grubbs.

He has had exhibitions of his visual work, installations and performances at museums and galleries such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Kitchen, LUMA Foundation.

In Zagreb Eli will present the material from his solo-album Last Signs of Speed (2016).
