The diversity and strange juxtapositions in Elias Linn’s music are “the result of a love house music dragged, sometimes screaming, sometimes rejoicing, through the modern composition and electroacoustic mill”.
Classically trained from an early age, Linn’s juvenilia includes a number of surprisingly advanced string quartets, small ensemble works and solo piano pieces. Since these initial efforts, his musical path has weaved from early 90’s UK and European techno through the tough and soulful dance outputs of Manchester, Chicago, Detroit and Berlin, following a consistent pattern of falling tempos and rising complexity.
