"Ceremonies Out Of The Air is the premiere double-length solo album of virtuoso Philadelphia-based saxophonist Keir Neuringer. Consisting of five extended improvisations performed before an invited audience in August 2013, the album presents the widely-travelled composer-performer's raw emotions laid bare in sound. These ceremonies are physical exhalations of grief at the loss of his mother months before the recording - by turns contemplative, ecstatic, restrained, and unbridled. They reveal Neuringer's prodigious technical vocabulary and physical stamina, as well as his idiosyncratic compositional influences and sensibilities. Central to all of it is the uncompromising urgency that is a key facet of Neuringer's creative work.

Between the album's opening okay we can go now - an uninterrupted 21-minute meditation on the harmonics of the alto's lowest pitch - and the keening closing folk rhapsody we had mostly good timesover an hour later, the sound of the saxophone ceases only between tracks, as Neuringer's use of the circular breathing technique is set in relief against a wide emotional palette and a wealth of sonic history and musical practice.

Recorded by Eugene Lew and mastered by Kato Hideki, it features specially-commissioned art by Brooklyn-based painter Erin Rice and a deeply personal text by Neuringer. The album takes its title from a passage in Cormac McCarthy's The Road: "Evoke the forms. Where you've nothing else construct Ceremonies Out Of The Air and breathe upon them."

Keir Neuringer is a composer, saxophonist, writer, and interdisciplinary artist with creative ties to Krakow, The Hague, Amsterdam, New York, and Philadelphia. He was at the 2013 Warsaw Autumn Festival and has performed for the BBC in London, at the Bimhuis and Paradiso in Amsterdam, at the Blue Note in NYC, and in other festivals, theaters, clubs, concert halls, art galleries, universities, living rooms and basements throughout Europe and North America. Among his collaborators are Rafal Mazur, dj sniff, Ensemble Klang, Julius Masri, Joel Ryan, and Paul Dutton, and he has performed with Evan Parker, Misha Mengelberg, Michel Waisvisz, and many others."-New Atlantis
