Eliot Krimsky






Eliot Krimsky is a Brooklyn-based composer and songwriter.  His latest release, Phase of Light, is based on synth improvisations Krimsky made while looking out of his neighbors’ window at dusk during the pandemic. It’s tempting to say that the music Phase of Light is slow, but that’s not quite right — it’s more like it’s unhurried.  It unfolds inexorably, like the sun coming up over the horizon and gradually lighting up the sky, or the full moon passing behind a nighttime skyscraper.

Krimsky was the singer and keyboardist of the band Glass Ghost — described by Time Out New York as “weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic” —- for which he produced two albums: Idol Omen (2009) and LYFE (2015). He has collaborated with numerous artists including Meshell Ndegeocello, Robert Stillman, Domino Kirke and Here We Go Magic, and performed at venues worldwide including the O2 Arena, Lincoln Center and the BAM Next Wave Festival. His film compositions can be heard on Hulu, the New York Times Op-Docs, PBS and Netflix.
