what's new with the crew and this site

you're reading it now

who's in the cru
features individual webpages as well as links to personal projects and an incomplete list of friends and associates.

where we've been
over 40 events have been presented under the ele_mental name. find out more about them here, and read an account of the first 3 years of ele_mental's existence.

upcoming events

our mission continues to be refined, and remains the most visible ele_mental ideal at work, always seeking new ways to bring artistic ideals into the party experience. look here to find out what we're up to next.

__the 21/22 corporation
music label and design concept
founded in 1992 by charles noel, as an outlet for his experimental noise/hip-hop in 1992. the corporation's first vinyl release was the "reconnaissance" drum'n'bass EP by charles as monochrome in early 1995. several vinyl releases have followed, featuring ele_mental (and ele_related) artists. some of these releases have gained overseas attention, and our experimental, low-budget package designs are a natural articulation of ele_mental ideals. the website has been reformulated and will soon feature new areas, sound clips from old releases, and reconstructions of older areas.

abstractions and extractions

extends ele_mental and 21/22 into more abstract artistic areas such as improvisational performance and installation environments. (23) also exists as an online experiment (in need of update).

a permanent online archive
compiles some of our activities in other artistic and academic areas:
con.versations features lengthy interviews with several notable electronic music artists, including dego, jeff mills, carl craig,and dan bell.
im.ages contains selected artwork by ele_mental or ele_related artists
said&did compiles documents and ideas relating to the history of electronic/experimental music, stolen from other sources.

tracing the histories of electronic/ experimental music
a more concrete realization of the ele_mental ideal, the think project began as an attempt to reveal the deeper connections that today's electronic and experimental music share with older forms. as more information is absorbed, the project grows.

sharing the diskspace
sculptor/painter robert strati is a columbus transplant, now living in new york. ele_mental is proud to host his experimental web/art area.
