'Aster is the duo and debut LP release of Ashley Paul and Eli Keszler. Performing across the northeast the past 3 years they have developed a unique style of sound which combines Keszler's piercing high pitched resonances from bowed crotales and cymbals with Paul's altissimo sustains and drastic pitch bends on alto saxophone and clarinet. The split tone combinations from these instruments is surprising and overwhelming, creating continuously shifting, multi-layered harmonics and intense inner ear sound. Spinning discs, invented resonating metal configurations, bending reed tones and voice interference carefully blend creating a wild texture that is both harsh and striking . In contrast, the final piece displays Ashley's wrenching string attacks and 's rapid-fire percussion, filled with low-end bowed cymbals and jittery crashes. Recorded to 4 track with no sound modification, Aster is the first 'official' release of this long standing duo, which plans on a series of releases in the future. Pressed on 160 gram copper plate pressed virgin vinyl, the record is housed in a black inner sleeve. The textured paper cover features a layered silk screened drawing while the inside contains grey pasted notes with an attached 8x24 inch three part multi-tone picture printed across a fold-out frosted vellum book. All silk screened, hand assembled and drawn by Ashley and Eli. The record comes in a limited hand numbered edition of 300 copies.'
