“Cold Pin I”

Eli Keszler has a new record called Cold Pin out on German label PAN. Essentially, this is a recording of the New York sound artist’s generative music installation of extended strings of various lengths and motorized beaters built directly onto the wall of the historic Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts, with the addition of some choice musicians like guitarist/composer Geoff Mullen and free jazz dude Greg Kelley (trumpet), among others. Here’s a video of the piece in as it was. Looks like a real classy item — 180 gram vinyl and more geometric artwork by Bill Kouligas and Kathryn Politis. Also, be sure to visit Eli’s own label Rel Records.
