about

Last Signs is Eli’s first solo release since 2012’s Catching
Net (PAN Records) and explores a very different side of his
unique acoustic universe. One in which the macrocosmic
percussive collisions of his earlier work give way to a gradual
unfolding of dub-influenced rhythmic constellations. Eli
has described Last Signs as his response to playing in club
environments over the last few years; an attempt to negotiate
a delicate balance between the materiality of his acoustic
instrument and the hyper-mediated sonic ecosystem of
the club sound system. Coming off like an inspired synthesis
between Scientist and Xenakis, Last Signs of Speed
is a truly unique work by an artist at the height of his
powers.
