9:15PM - 1:00AM Price: $8
Using drums, along with crotales, bells, bowed metal, strings, Eli creates a unique whirlwind of sound that balances sparse droning harmonics with intense, fast, free rhythms. He has performed and/or recorded with artists such as Jandek, Phil Niblock (performed a new work of his for bowed crotales and saxophone), Roscoe Mitchell, & Loren Connors.
"It's hard to envisage that this music has been made by just one person .. especially on parts of Untitled, where the music slowly builds ... the slower more textural sections are particularly striking: bowed cymbals, bells and fender rhodes give track 2 a chamber music intimacy."
-Mike Barnes, WIRE magazine (August 2007)
plays reeds, unique string instruments, electronics and sings. Her dream-like music juxtaposes aggressive, sustained high pitched blasts, floating vocals, clattering strings and bells, cry-like saxophones and is somehow tied together by oddly melodic songs.
"An entirely impressive collection of alvin lucier/ horatio radulescu-lineage difference tones, discordant euro-style free improv, and rattling, almost no-wave esque exercises ...a form destroyer if there ever was one; highly recommended !!!"
-Keith Fullerton Whitman
