Elliot Bergman Performance

  • The Hollywood Roosevelt (map)

Felix Art Fair, The Hollywood Roosevelt, Room 102, Shane Campbell Gallery

Musician and artist Elliot Bergman will perform on his collection of handmade instruments during the Felix Art Fair. For the past 15 years, Bergman has been building amplified variations on the African Mbira, which he refers to as Metal Tongues. Using these instruments as source material, he builds looping and layered soundscapes that evoke comparisons to Moondog, Reich, Bertoia,  Eno and Konono No. 1. These rhythmic and otherworldly textures range from minimal and meditative to driving and danceable.
