Live music: Elle Shimada
Layers of strings, new-jazz beats and other-worldly atmospheres
Art After Hours, Music
嶋田会希 – Elle Shimada is a violinist, producer, curator, DJ and multi-instrumentalist from Tokyo, now based in Melbourne. Her sound is a unique combination of thickly layered string lines, heavy new-jazz influenced beats and cinematic, other-worldly atmospheres. Fluidly fusing between Tokyo’s futuristic underground scene, London and Detroit House, LA Hip Hop, Melbourne mellow-jazz and sacred spirit’s songs somewhere deep in the mountains, Shimada’s production and live sets are a kinetic succession of dance beats and abstract compositions.
