KEVIN KELLER: Musical ontologies of Imagination
(AUDIO INTERVIEW + MUSIC MIX)
Kevin Keller specializes in `ambient chamber music`, a term coined by John Diliberto on the radio show `Echoes`. The American composer was born in California, but now lives and works in “the melting pot of the world”, New York. He studied Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music and has debuted as a recording artist in 1994 with "The Mask of Memory". Keller's catalog pendulates between acoustic and electronic albums, intertwining instruments and styles to sculpt and mold a remarkable melodic sound. For `The Day I Met Myself` and `La Strada` he received two ZMR trophies on the ` Best Neo-Classic Album' section, and both Award-winning recordings were produced by the oboist Russel Walder. In addition to this, he composes film music and pieces for choreographers such as Dwight Rhoden, Ray Sullivan, and Elisa Monte.
In our interview, Kevin Keller reveals the results of his latest musical endeavor, named `The Front Porch of Heaven`, and shares with us his cinematic journey into sound, image, and movement.
