Press Kit – Alex Keller and Sean O’Neill

Biographical

Alex Keller and Sean O’Neill have collaborated in performance and installation pieces since 2015. Using field recordings, vintage telephone test equipment, magnetic oscillators, light and space, their work has addressed the agents and artifacts of change in the urban and acoustic realms.

In 2017, they will release an LP called Kruos on the Elevator Bath label, and a CD called LCLX on the Mimeomeme label.

Alex Keller is an audio artist, sound designer, curator and teacher based in Austin, Texas. His engagement with performance, installation, and recording is an outgrowth of his interest in architecture, language, abstraction and music. One of his distinctive features as a creator is his ability to show the act of research as having an aesthetic value in and of itself.

Sean O’Neill is a multi-media artist, who explores both the visible light spectrum and the audible frequency range to determine who they influence our lived environments, and vice versa; he has a stated interest in how perception shapes the dynamics of spatiality.

Technical requirements for performance

  • Two circuits (one for audio and one for lights).
  • Three extension cords (two for audio and one for lights).
  • Four DI boxes (we will each send a stereo pair).
