We are moving the show to the space previously known as SHINDERS in downtown MPLS for this one night of improvised musics. The owner of Chambers, Ralph Burnett, is hosting an exhibit of Mathew Bakkom’s artwork and they are using Shinders to have a satellite group show for his friends in conjunction with his own. A very exciting opportunity for the series to continue engaging with malleable spaces and interact with the local arts scene.

Shinders is at 731 Hennepin Ave.

WE ARE NOT ABANDONING ART OF THIS, just taking advantage of this opportunity. I can’t express enough gratitude and joy for our experience with the AOT gallery and the people therein. Hats off to them!

Eli Keszler and Ashley Paul

- – - –

Eli Keszler and Ashley Paul will be visiting us from Providence, RI. They will play two short solo sets and then as a duet. Details on their work are below:

eli keszler

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, recorded or collaborated with artists such as Jandek, Phill Niblock (performed a new work of his for bowed crotales and saxophone), Roscoe Mitchell, Loren Connors, Charles Cohen, Anthony Coleman (appearing on his New World Records Release), Aki Onda, Bryan Eubanks, David Linton, Steve Pyne (Redhorse), Greg Kelley, Ashley Paul. Eli has performed at venues like The Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston), Irving Plaza, Merkin Hall, Issue Project Room, The Stone and The Knitting Factory (NYC and LA), and countless bookstores, basements, and small galleries around the US and Europe. He has released solo CD’s and cassettes on REL as well as labels such as Rare Youth (debut solo LP, Livingston), Reverb Worship and Something on The Road.

“…fantastic LP of austere solo percussion and dark matrixes of strings from this past collaborator with Jandek, with aspects of Scelsi and Dumitrescu, , Keiji Haino and Biota.”
-david keenan (volcanic tongue, wire magazine), on eli’s solo LP “livingston”

“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

ashley paul

Ashley Paul 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. In the past year she performed with Loren connors, Aki Onda, Joe Morris, and Greg Kelley, premiered a new work by Phill Niblock for soprano saxophone and bowed crotales (written for her and Eli Keszler), performed as part of the US premiere of Mauricio Kagel’s masterpiece ‘Der Schall’ at Merkin Concert Hall in New York and was heard in a live feature on wzbc’s Rare Frequency. Additionally, Ashley performs regularly with Anthony Coleman in duo, trio and on his recent New World Records release, plays duo with Eli Keszler and has recently begun performing solo, sharing the stage with Thurston Moore, Mats Gustaffson, Chris Corsano and others.

“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

“Album of the column from this newcomer…DOL is an intriguing hybrid, merging long-form tones with primitivist DIY clatter and Improv dissonance. Paul handles the mutually antagonistic idioms with aplomb and a winning mixture of accuracy and rawness.”

Travis Johns (San Fransisco, CA)
A composer and sound artist from San Francisco, Ca. Using a combination of processed field recordings, sine wave oscillators and analog electronics, he attempts to weave textural tapestries of gestures, thoughts and experiences into a singular mass of infinite sonic possibilities. Most recently, his work has concerned itself primarily with two notions – namely that of the desolation and excess of human industry, as well as the mysteries and intrigue of the subconscious mind, often sounding something like the distant swarming of well oiled mechanical bees woven with fissures of dark tones and noise rips.
