Eliot Krimsky is a Brooklyn-based composer songwriter and producer whose work is often defined by big ambience, unique and adept keyboard playing, empathy in the vocals and a search for identity. Following a degree from New England Conservatory in 2001, Krimsky went on to form indie bands Flying in 2005 then Glass Ghost along with Dirty Projectors’ drummer Mike Johnson in 2009. His new solo album Wave in Time features his distinctive falsetto voice—alongside sprawling, cinematic ambience and incisive, hook-heavy electronic pop—singing of fear, despair, humanity, and hope.
Over the past decade Krimsky has collaborated with many notable artists including Meshell Ndegeocello, Here We Go Magic, Robert Stillman, Sharon Van Etten, Deerhoof, Travis Laplante, Sheerwater and choreographer Beth Gill. Krimsky is a recipient of Performance New York’s RAMP grant / residency (2015), Lumberyard Contemporary Performing Arts residency (2016) w/ Open House, and BAM Next Wave residency and performance w/ Open House. His film music can be heard on Netflix, Amazon, PBS and HBO.
