Eli Keszler and Kate NV at silent green / Wednesday, 31.5.2023

New York-based percussionist, composer and electroacousticist Eli Keszler‘s latest solo album, Icons (LuckyMe, 2021), is an immersive work in perpetual motion, evoking a glorious and dystopian western world. Icons offers a latticework of melodic percussion, drum set, and electro-acoustic instrumentation, built upon fragments of American abstraction, ancient scales, industrial percussion, and jazz-age film noir to achieve its feeling of imperial decay. This expansive music takes on hyperreal forms difficult to describe outside of the loss and wonderment that defines our age.

Kate NV is the multi-faceted solo persona of US-based artist Ekaterina Shilonosova. In addition to her solo career, she is a member of the Moscow-based post-punk project Glintshake and the Moscow Scratch Orchestra, and forms the duo Deciscive Pink with Angel Deradoorian. On her new album Wow (RVNG Intl, March 2023), Kate uses childlike, joyful melodies and takes sounds, objects and rituals under the microscope and listeners into a parallel dimension where she makes the everyday fun, unusual and exciting.

bela (they/them) is a musician and a performance artist based in Berlin and Seoul. On stage, bela growls through a diary of poems and slogans over an enthralling composition of electronic pungmul music. They engage in the depths of queerness and miscommunication across and beyond the boundaries of language and drama — by critically positioning oneself as an unheard speaker in traditional Korean narratives. bela’s vision of Korean folk rhythms and club music confluents in their 2021 record guidelines EP, released on Montréal’s Éditions Appærent label.
