Elvin Brandhi

 
 

Elvin Brandhi (all'anagrafe Freya Edmondes), poetessa, sound-artist e producer, è originaria di Bridgend in Galles, ma cittadina del mondo, muovendosi tra Vienna e Kampala, Berlino, Cairo, Dakkar, Marsiglia e Newcastle. Ha avuto un’infanzia immersa quotidianamente nella musica, e ha studiato pittura e disegno all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Vienna. La sua produzione sonora si sviluppa su basi distorte e ritmi esplosivi e aberranti che fungono da piattaforma instabile su cui canta e performa i propri flussi di coscienza. Furioso profondo o non-sense, il suo spoken word auto-tune, impasta field recordings, nastri, vinili, strumenti e voce. Dal 2013 ha suonato e collaborato con molti improvvisatori tra cui Rhodri Davies, Eugene Chadbourne, Michael Fischer, Gustav Thomas, Greta Buitiké, THF Drenching, Alan Wilkinson, Ventil, WIDT, l'ex Jungle Brothers MC Sensational, Tony Allen, Pat Thomas e con il collettivo ugandese Nyege Nyege. Ad ogni tappa del suo percorso nomadico collabora con artisti locali. Ha partecipato a festival internazionali tra cui CTM (Berlin), Borealis (Bergen), Donaufestival (Krems,) Kraak Festival (Bruxelles), Umlaut festival (Paris,) Total Inertia (Leeds), TUSK (Newcastle), Sonic Acts (Amsterdam), Counterflows (Glasgow). Tra le collaborazioni stabili c’è il duo noise pop low-fi Yeah You con il padre Gustav Thomas, il duo interdisciplinare BAHK con Daniel Blumberg, il duo INSIN con Bashar Suleiman, e Bad@Maths. Ha realizzato l’EP in solo Shelf Life (C.A.N.V.A.S), e gli LP Villaelvin (Hakuna Kulala) e Elvin Brandhi (Krai). Nel 2017 le è stato assegnato il premio PRS Oram Award per musiciste innovatrici, con una commissione produttiva al BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Ha inoltre fatto parte di SHAPE platform 2020.

Elvin Brandhi (born Freya Edmondes) is an improvising lyricist, producer and sound artist,originally from Bridgend in Wales, but a citizen of the world, moving between Vienna and Kampala, Berlin, Cairo, Dakkar, Marseille and Newcastle. She had a childhood immersed in music every day, and studied painting and drawing at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Her sound production develops on distorted bases that act as an unstable platform on which she sings and performs her improvised stream of consciousness lyrical trips. Deep furious or nonsense, her spoken word lies on explosive and aberrant beats from field recordings, tape, vinyl, instrument and voice.Since 2013 she has played and collaborated with many improvisers including Rhodri Davies, Eugene Chadbourne, Michael Fischer, Gustav Thomas, Greta Buitiké, THF Drenching, Alan Wilkinson, Ventil, WIDT, the former Jungle Brothers MC Sensational, Tony Allen, Pat Thomas and with the Ugandan collective Nyege Nyege. At each stop of her nomadic journey she collaborates with local artists. She has participated in international festivals including CTM (Berlin), Borealis (Bergen), Donaufestival (Krems,) Kraak Festival (Brussels), Umlaut festival (Paris,) Total Inertia (Leeds), TUSK (Newcastle), Sonic Acts (Amsterdam) , Counterflows (Glasgow). Among her stable collaborations are the low-fi noise pop duo Yeah You with her father Gustav Thomas, the interdisciplinary duo BAHK with Daniel Blumberg, the INSIN duo with Bashar Suleiman, and Bad@Maths.
