ISSUE presents Eleh’s first ever US performance, joined by Lary 7.
Eleh was formed in 1999 as an exploration of analog synthesis. Eleh create highly minimal and deeply spiritual pure analog electroacoustic music with emphasis on tonal juxtapositions, bass tones and various acoustic phenomenon. Eleh’s work emphasizes the physical presence of sound as it has been inspired by the physical world. Eleh has released numerous LP only records on Important Records and Taiga Records and Eleh’s first full length CD has just been released by Touch. Eleh is influenced by early electronic minimalist pioneers such as La Monte Young, Eliane Radigue, Pauline Oliveros & Charlemagne Palestine. Other important influences include Josef Albers, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Paul Klee, Joseph Cornell and Walter Gropius.
Lary 7 is a co-founder of Plastickville Records and is a major figure in the New York experimental music underground. He has worked with Jarboe and Jimi Tenor, and has appeared on releases by Touch. He succeeded in upstaging Arto Lindsay at their 2003 concert at the Barbican Theatre in London, by getting the most jeers for his ground-breaking style of irritainment.
Touch.30 live in NYC is made possible in part by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and MIC Music Information Centre Norway.
