El Ten Eleven – Live

El Ten Eleven, formed in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, are a 2-man post-rock team consisting of Kristian Dunn (bass guitar/composition) and Tim Fogarty (drums). The pair came together in 2002 and have been releasing music since 2004 which saw their debut, self-titled album on the cleverly titled Fake Record Label. Since their debut, the duo has released five full length albums to date, a remix album, and an EP. 2015 will see their sixth studio release, titled Fast Forward. Focusing on groove, rhythm, and texture, the guys manage to create evolving soundscapes full of arpeggiated guitar layers, intricate yet subtle melodies, and poly-rhythmic parts that seem to move in and out between each other like a woven fabric. The labyrinth of stringed parts are accompanied by Fogarty’s driving drum patterns that range in texture from entirely acoustic to entirely electronic, often ending up with a unique hybrid of both. The guys came to Signal Kitchen to share a piece of their artistry and we managed to capture some great footage of the show along with audio of their entire live set. Enjoy.
