Eli Keszler - Cold Pin (Pan)

Eli Keszler - Cold Pin (Pan)Comentários: *Cold PIn is both a composition and stand alone installation, 14 strings ranging in length from 25 to 3 feet are strung across a 15 x 40 curved wall, with motors attacking the strings, connected by micro-controllers, pick-ups and rca cable, recorded in Boston's historic Cyclorama, a massive dome built to house the Cyclorama of the Battle of Gettysburg painting in 1884.* [...] the result is a dense, spasming cluster of rapid-fire rhythms and dissonant harmonic sustain with a keening mechanical motion, blurring the distinctions between human and motorized participants to disorienting and sense-engulfing degrees. The B-side is a variation on the same theme, but with a more brittle and spacious outcome. However, that's not to say it's any more comfortable: on headphones it still sounds like an army of ceramic ants with steel-soled clogs scurrying across your cochlea. Eli is a graduate of the New England Conservatory in Boston where he studied with Anthony Coleman and Ran Blake. via boomkat
