New York-based composer and percussionist Eli Keszler bridges the realms of avant-garde jazz and electronica. Renowned for his intensely rhythmic and propulsive solo drumming, Keszler builds deeply resonant and melodic worlds of sound that seem digitally-enhanced but are all produced by hand. After a year of collaborations with the likes of Laurel Halo and Oneohtrix Point Never, Keszler recently released his first solo music in over two years. Entitled ‘Stadium’ and ‘Empire’, the new releases expand on his repertoire, incorporating the characteristic assortment of percussion, keyboards and acoustic instruments, alongside mesmerising string and brass arrangements.
