CEREMONIES OUT OF THE AIR: Keir Neuringer

Keir Neuringer is a musician and interdisciplinary artist who is involved in creative arts communities in Poland, Holland, and the US.

He has cultivated a personal and intensely physical approach to saxophone improvisation, plays analogue electronics and Farfisa organ, and sings and narrates text.

After training as a composer and jazz saxophonist in the US, he spent two years on a Fulbright research grant in Krakow. He then moved to The Hague, where he curated performances for audiovisual art and earned a masters degree from the experimental ArtScience Institute.

He now lives in Philadelphia and continues to travel widely to present his work, collaborating closely with Rafal Mazur, Ensemble Klang, and Julius Masri, among many others.

Neuringer’s solo saxophone album “Ceremonies Out Of The Air” has just been released and is available on bandcamp.

Curt Oren

drove all the way from Iowa City to West Philly & played a set of his baritone saxophone music accompanied by circular breathing.

The result was an unbroken stream of pounding rhythms and fluid melodies.

Oren’s music is available on Bandcamp.
