Colombian musician Ela Minus announces her debut album, Acts of Rebellion, on Domino. Performed, produced and recorded entirely by herself, Acts of Rebellion is a complex manifesto on simplicity, a call to fight, to live, to be present. It’s a collection about the personal as political and embracing the beauty of tiny acts of revolution in our everyday lives.
Using only hardware to perform, write and record, Ela creates complex, technical electronic music that exudes a warm vibrancy, along with a darker, almost celebratory understanding that our breaths aren’t infinite. Her sharp, coiled words are cathartic - due in part to her approach to writing them.
Working exclusively with hardware, she's somehow able to draw together each of those influences - the hedonistic abandon of club culture, the creative excellence of avant-techno, and the sheer thrill punk rock can offer.
