More info about Elek Ember:
ELEK EMBER is a Techno Experimental duo based in Paris, composed of Emilie Zawadzki and Sigolène Valax. Through their live A/V performance, their musical approach develops an immersive polyphonic experience, between an energetic musical journey and some hypnotic glitchy visual projections.
By improvising experimental materials on their analog instruments, drum machines and modular systems, they explore different sound universes between drone oscillations, abstract noise, synth pads and techno rhythms. With their electronic beats and organic pulses, they create a suspended irrational space, where melodies and dissonant frequencies are organized in temporal micro layers.
Since their creation in 2017, ELEK EMBER has performed in Berlin at Griessmuehle, in London at the New River Studio, and in Paris at La Station Gare des Mines, La Maison des Métallos, Les Instants Chavirés, as well as at the French research center for acoustics sounds IRCAM, at the Sonic Drawing Festival and Nuit Blanche 2020.
They are currently in residency at Mains d’Oeuvres (Paris) for one year (20/21) for working on the project Forest Lab 360°.
