ele_mental is a loose affiliation of creative, technologically-oriented people that has been in existence since late 1992. from its very beginnings in columbus, ohio, ele_mental has been singular in its attempts to fuse design, technology, and art with the culture of electronic and experimental music.
over the years, ele_mental artists and events have formed the backbone of the local electronic music scene, while making strong links with artists and collectives as diverse as underground resistance (detroit), round table music / public transit recordings (toronto), EARseprononceoreille (strasbourg), reinforced (london), black nation records (michigan), twilight 76 (detroit), and beta bodega coalition (worldwide).
with its enduring
presence in columbus, ohio, and other outposts in portland, oregon, new
york city, and elsewhere, ele_mental continues to serve as a resource
and communication nexus between artists and ideas.
