Aragorn Eissler

Aragorn Eissler is a composer, drummer and AISD Music Production teacher based in Austin, Texas.

Eissler has played steel drums and studied Brazilian guitar, played in blues bands, organ trios, jazz and rock groups and sung in a choir. After training as a classical percussionist, witnessing an opera performance of Mozart's Marriage of Figaro planted the seed to do more, musically, and he began exploring the possibilities.

Under the artist moniker EISS he creates rhythmic improvisational music for movement and relaxation using the latest electronic techniques. In performance he navigates the journey, lingering in deep meditation, climbing a dizzying peak, and exploding into a poly-rhythmical celebration. Eissler developed his live show during residencies at Austin venues Vintage Lounge, Kenny Dorhams Backyard and Dozen Street.
