AUDIO: Eli Smith – “The Seams of the Sky are Unraveling”
Improvisational noise musician Eli Smith recorded his set at the Jazz Gallery from February 2nd earlier this year, which featured him playing his guitar like a drum in addition to plucking it with various household objects. The second track, which is more minimalist and sporadic, was recorded at home a few days before. Improvisational noise is not only elegantly chaotic but entirely raw, giving us an authentic exploration of Smith’s creative canals on the spot. Noise music itself is made outside of the cultural context typically applied to music, challenging what defines music altogether. We are thrilled to be bringing more of a spotlight to some of Milwaukee’s most unique sonic wizards.
