About Elysium Furnace Works presents Loren Connors

"I think Loren Connors is an artist who happens to use guitar, like I often joke that
Werner Herzog is a poet who happens to use a camera."
— Jim O'Rourke

"Nothing that Loren does reminds me of other people.
He's a great man — everybody knows that. And a great artist too."
— Jandek


Elysium Furnace Works is a cooperative project

co-led by Mike Faloon and James Keepnews.

EFW seeks to present the work of vanguard artists

in settings as dedicated and uncompromising as the art itself,

focusing primarily although not exclusively

on live music performances in and around Beacon, NY.
