ONE ONE LIVE X ELVI / KIRHA (DJ set)

  • There are many facets to the musical journey of ELVI, yet in recent years there have been concentrated on the development of his own a distinct way of performing live in concert. This is a therapeutic experience. This is a physical experience. This is a concept that is based on simple limitations – ELVI uses no acoustic or electronic instruments, no synthesizers, no drum machines, instead opting for low-fidelity field recordings that he then modulates using pitch, repetition and spatial transformation to create music inspired by his love for dance music of a a myriad of genres as his DJ persona Elvi Soulsystems – in turn – does not limit itself at all. Inspired it may be but does an ELVI concert seem like an electronic dance music show? To some – maybe. To others – this is a meeting with a wall of sound and they compare ELVI to modern metal music. To others still – it is a therapy of letting go of any prejudices and associations, melting into the visceral sound without musical reference. ELVI has been performing in and around Latvia – from Erica Synths Garage to Liepāja Art Forum to Ūdenslīdējs 5000 to Skaņu Mežs to the Music Innovation Studies Centre in Vilnius. In 2020 the first EP of this music was released in recorded form through the _too contemporary editions. In 2021 – probably the worst year for live performances – ELVI became a SHAPE platform alumni.
