Since 2003, multi-instrumentalist and composer Keith Kenniff (aka Helios) has been a mainstay in the electronic music/IDM community with releases on influential labels such as Merck Records and Type Records as well as countless remixes and compilation appearances. His signature blending of electronics, ambience and found-sounds have garnered attention from some of the top music critics in the industry. Kenniff's cinematic soundscapes have also caught the ear of the film world both under Helios and his piano-based alter-ego Goldmund, with music appearing in feature films such as Mister Lonely by acclaimed director Harmony Korine, documentaries for the BBC and a trailer for the film Revolutionary Road. Each year, the Decibel Festival brings artists from all over the world to participate in several days of music taking place at various venues in Seattle, Washington. Shortly after the release of his album Caesura (TYPE 042CD/LP) in 2008, Helios was asked to perform at the ambient music showcase along with fellow artists Eluvium, Deaf Center and Brian McBride. Performing on this night as a venerable one-man-band, Helios' live set features Kenniff constantly switching off on instruments, looping keyboards, guitar, and playing live drums, often pulling double duty on two instruments at once. Live At The Triple Door compiles material heard on his past albums, Unomia, Eingya (TYPE 011CD/LP) and Caesura, as well as previously-unreleased material. Professionally recorded and re-mastered, this recording (originally released as a limited CD-R-only pressing) captures a rare and special night of Helios' music, with the sounds of nature swirling in and out of Kenniff's signature brand of soothing, sun-soaked ambient electronica reminiscent of artists such as Boards Of Canada, Sigur Rós and early Brian Eno.
