Boomkat Product Review:
Billed as a mini-album, ‘Tilt’ is a varied and arresting chunk of off-world listening from New England operative Eli Keszler. Balanced on his shocking skill as a percussionist, the album ranges from Keszler’s usual free-drum rattle to more subtle drone epics. The high point comes in the middle of the disc with a near quarter-hour exploration into low frequencies, hum and what sounds like the scratching of cymbals. This almost seismic piece redefines the idea of what being a drummer may or may not be – there are no defined ‘beats’ per se, but this is all the work of one person, seated with a collection of objects. Some of those objects may or may no be drums – but it’s hardly important when the music sounds this good.
