Marloes Van Son

Atmospheric soundscapes with a pop twist. Combining synths and vocals with loops and samples.

mii

Smell of barnyards, camel aromas, disposable no-time, and a dip-coated iForgot, sealed beneath a z-membrane. Rocky road styled teeth. An eroteme mosaic. Ancient anxiety.

ele-gi-eli at Cechownia, Gliwice Poland

featuring Plato V.

Soundcloud

Despite working from 9 to 5 as a dentist in Upper Silesia region, Poland, Plato V. spends most of the time exploring the relationship between a performer, an instrument and surroundings. Inspired mostly by biological processes taking place on Earth and by natural phenomena occurring in remote corners of universe. He intends to create musical situations that go beyond what is visible, venturing to the edges and crevices of reality.

BIO

Ari-Pekka Leinonen actively works with performatic sound art installations that utilise sound projection with multiple loudspeakers. Other than that he is interested in carpenting, possibilities of loudspeakers as wooden sculptures and how the sound systems create platforms for moving bodies and sonic storytelling. 2023 he explored the skyline of Brussels and minor details of the city facade in order to combine the visual explorations and aural discoveries into a conclusive soundpiece ele-gi-eli for his sound triptych consisting of two earlier works L=10 and ||: o / dear<3 :||

Currently he is exploring the mystical figure "A Donner" that keeps on gifting people with free items. This research should eventually transform into a musical performance that would "give". Other than that his current modus operandi circulates around ele-gi-eli and how to put that on the road as a traveling sound sculpture.
