Eli Keszler Comes to The Kitchen for Synth Nights Series >>

The Synth Nights music series continues at The Kitchen with a new installation-composition by acclaimed composer Eli Keszler. Synth Nights is a series devoted to live performances of electronic music. Keszler, a multi-instrumentalist, will debut his new piece: “Filtrations.” The installation-composition will feature three separate instrumental ensembles overlaid to form one unit. Keszler pushes his performance toward installation so his entire project shows a large-scale, complex social model where narrative, environment and performative conditions will combine. According to a press release, the performances are scored in relation to the installation and for participation within the site as a singular form, with hundreds of mechanical components concealed in sculptural planes and visible piano wire extending across the space. In addition to the large-scale installation, the ensemble cast for "Filtrations" consists of Keszler (drums and percussion), Leila Bordreuil (cello), Mariel Roberts (cello), Geoff Mullen (guitar and electronic controls) and Anthony Coleman (piano).
