ele-gi-eli(2023)

9-channel sound sculpture โ€” conceptually fluid

or a sound system that playfully speculates the possibility of a loudspeaker to function simultaneously as an acoustic diffuser panel. A positive Brusselization has formed its shape through the influence of cityโ€™s skyline, unconstrained architecture and flexible moving bodies. The loudspeakers as sculptures express the potential of dance and bodily listening as a collective leisure activity.

โ€ฆ.or a sonic piece that narrates a story of an imaginary electronic music composer amigoismyfriend, whose newest album is previewed by imaginary radio DJ. The songs are inspired by the city and mediated in broken French allowing the original meaning of lyrics to distort into vocal expressions that might convey misunderstandings.

โ€ฆor a platform for sonic art practitioners, performers and bodily listeners. Mobile in its nature. Ready and willing to serve.

...or a tool for creating yet another unclearly defined upcoming sonic piece in the near future.

Lโ€™attention!

Radio NOO-NOO-NOO-NEU-FEUDAL presents ele-gi-eli, ~one hour-long radio program hosted by apiliooni

Five years ago three (con)artist/radio hosts built a radio shack in the center of Brussels in order to release their inner ERNST PINOSSI. Five years later one of the radio hosts is back in Brussels with a new sound system as an acoustic radio soundwave transmitter.

The show introduces the new album โ€œele-gi-eliโ€ by amigoismyfriend and tries to demystify the album as an individual achievement. The songs are inspired by the city of Brussels and are mediated in broken French allowing the original meaning of lyrics to distort into vocal expressions that might convey misunderstandings.

โ€œ70 years ago Jacques Brel left Brussels behind and went to Paris to sing chanson. 70 years later amigoismyfriend arrived to Brussels to fill this vacant position. Together with a music producer pahoinpol, amigoismyfriend crafted ten new songs about longing and gratitude.โ€
