Eli Keszler & Ashley Paul



Recorded live from Brooklyn’s ISSUE Project Room in June 2013, percussionist Eli Keszler and saxophonist Ashley Paul perform a duo as part of the PAN_ACT festival. Keszler's bowed crotales and cymbals resonate within Paul's altissimo sustains and drastic pitch bends. The split tone combinations from these instruments is surprising and overwhelming, creating continuously shifting, multi-layered harmonics and intense inner ear sound.

Ashley Paul returns to ISSUE October 26th 2013, performing solo as part of Ten Years Alive on the Infinite Plain.

Eli Keszler is a composer, artist and multi-instrumentalist based in New York City. In performance, he often plays drums, bowed crotales, and guitar in conjunction with his installations. In his ensemble compositions, he uses extended strings, motors, crotales, horns, and mechanical devices to create his sound, balancing intense harmonic formations with acoustic sustain, fast jarring rhythm, mechanical propulsion, dense textures, and detailed visual presentations. He has collaborated with Christian Wolff, Oren Ambarchi, Phill Niblock, Roscoe Mitchell, Tony Conrad, Joe McPhee, Loren Connors, Geoff Mullen, Jandek, and many others, and has recorded more than a dozen CDs and LPs for PAN, ESP-DISK and his own REL.

Ashley Paul is a performer and composer based in Brooklyn, New York. She uses an array of instruments including saxophone, clarinet, voice, guitar, bells, and percussion, mixing disparate elements to create a colorful palette of sound that works its way into her intuitive songs; free forming, introverted melodies. This blend manifests beautiful and simple musical forms against acoustic experimentation. Paul has performed or recorded with Phill Niblock, Loren Connors, Aki Onda, C. Spencer Yeh, Anthony Coleman, Joe Maneri, Joe Morris, Seijiro Murayama, Greg Kelley, and Bill Nace appearing on such labels as PAN, ESP-DISK’ and Tzadik.
