Critically acclaimed indie classical group Montopolis turns west Texas tales into song in this concert premier inspired by Big Bend National Park. The performance weaves science, history, poetry and personal stories into music inspired by the land and the people that have walked upon it. Music and story are accompanied by breathtaking video that captures the epic grandeur of the vast high desert wilderness.
Keszler’s intricate playing suggests he could take on an army of Aphex Twin’s computer-controlled acoustic instruments, barehanded.
As noted by Pitchfork, "Eli Keszler is experimental electronic music’s favorite drummer. A regular collaborator of Laurel Halo and Oneohtrix Point Never (both live and on record), the virtuosic percussionist helps bring surreal, digital compositions to life."
Fortress Presents and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth present a multi-media performance with Eli Keszler and Nate Boyce.

The project has been active since the mid-2000s as a site-specific live performance happening, featuring a wide array of multi-media and theatrical elements, where no two shows were ever the same.
The work of great Broadway composers—from Gershwin to Sondheim to Rodgers & Hammerstein—has helped to define the American experience. We learn many of their songs when we’re very young; they often become the soundtrack of our lives. Join us as we dive into the Great American Songbook, with piano transcriptions of many of its famous pieces by some of today’s most prolific composers (Stephen Hough, Earl Wild, Mason Bates, Jake Heggie, Ricky Ian Gordon) and performed by several of our favorite pianists.
