University of Surrey - Institute of Sound Recording - 2nd Moog Symposium.

Dedicated to the memory of Peter ’Sleazy’ Christopherson [Throbbing Gristle/Coil/Hipgnosis], on this the octo-anniversary since his passing.




Elusive U.S. drone based composer's ongoing exploration of the Moog SoundLab UK.

In October 2017 Eleh visited the MSL UK to explore and create tones & sounds for a new work.

He now returns to utilise his initial research in a live scenario, a second stage of a work in progress - with two public meditations on tone.

Unsound described Eleh as "Anonymous and rarely performing live, Eleh is one of the most enigmatic artists in contemporary electronic music. Associated mostly with Important Records (& in the UK the Touch label) his music explores the physical presence of sound”.

Frieze art magazine ”The  monumental frequencies of Eleh” ^

These will be Eleh's first ever performances in the UK.



Electronic Sound magazine describe Robin The Fog aka Howlround as ”not unlike Brian Eno remixing Gyorgy Ligeti”.

Howlround is a live manipulation of multiple analog tape loops - ”a dense tapestry as haunting as immersive as Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson’s soundtrack work"(The Wire  Nov 2016).
