On 21 May 1993. the first of a series of ele_mental events were launched, at an Ohio State University parking garage, launching the careers of many midwestern electronic musicians; from Dieselboy to Titonton. Their next event, Comfort, with almost a thousand attendees, crystallized their long-standing association with Detroit's own Jon Santos, Brian Gillespie, Claude Young Jr. / Claude Young, Anthony Shakir, Mack Goudy Jr., and by nature, Daniel Bell, Carl Craig / Carl Craig, UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE and more.
ele_mental's core has consistency challenged the notion of art, movement, and music, with their later active_not_passive ambient series, ele_ment series of live concerts with influencers and the influenced, a collaboration with FIREXIT's Matt Clausen, Daniel McMahon, bringing The Rapture, Mouse on Mars, Tortoise's Chicago Underground Duo, OVAL, Monolake and POLE.
In recent years, after their moves to NYC, Charles Noel and Todd Sines continued to push into new territory, with the launch of their band, INTERVAL featuring close friend Andries Boekelman; in their quest for the right fit for a label, they launched HELIC.AL, a response to creating long-last artifacts of pure analog / physical recordings; and their new projects Artefactos De Dolor with The Bunker's Alyssa Barrera / LDY OSC, and Vertical Silence, a new post-punk project from Charles Noel.
Since 2016, HELIC.AL have hosted Eric Random, Das Ding, Cindytalk, John Bender, Ike Yard’s Stuart Argabright as Black Rain, Charles Manier, Zöe Zanias, 51717, Stallone the Reducer, Bill Converse, SSPS & Gramma of Excepter, Möthersky, Soren, Moonstarr, Titonton, Richard Fearless and many more. Most of our artists have been bending & sculpting sounds from 1977 & onwards; so each event brings together artist whose “heyday” were in the 80’s, 90’s, etc and we juxtapose then with up and coming artists to present a diverse lineup (Asian, Polish, Bangladesh and Mexican artists are part of the bill); this year also exhibits a 50/50 gender balance.
