Eli Neumann-Hammond is a composer from Massachusetts who explores themes of representation and place through minimally processed field recordings. At the core of his approach is an understanding of sound as a social and material flux between listeners and their environments. His work is informed by avant-garde poetics, anthropology, and the history of audio reproduction technology. Eli holds a bachelor's degree in Modern Culture and Media from Brown University in Providence, RI, where he completed a thesis on the sounds of contemporary transportation infrastructure. His work was recently featured on Seattle's and/OAR imprint.
