Elijah B Torn is a sonic-vigilante, boombastic bass-blipping, live-looping, hand-wired light show-providing and an electronic sonic assault. Born with looping device in-hand, Torn has been creating electronic music for well over fifteen years. He uses Ableton Live to bring an unquantized approach to live electronic performance while adding some much needed grit to the sometimes sterile electronic music world.

He plays electric bass and guitar, which are used as the centerpieces for creating fresh textures & sounds. However no sound is safe. From cassette tapes to field recordings, Torn uses them all to create his signature electronic sound including two solo cds, (with an EP on the way shortly and new disc in the works) which have received air time on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic”, WNYC’s “New Sounds” as well as Lou Reed’s SiriusXM show “NY Shuffle”. He has received international, web and local press ranging from Electronic Musician Magazine to being featured on CreateDigitalMusic site. He has made sample cd’s of loops as well as featured artist sample packs for Puremagnetik. Mr. Torn has been a featured performer at Ableton clinics, plays lots of shows and has toured the good ol’ US of A several times.
Elijah B Torn also works for MassiveMusic , a music agency located in Amsterdam, New York, Los Angeles and Shanghai, where he is Creative Director. In 2009, he received a “First Boards Award” for his compositions and sound design for commercials. It takes him two minutes to eat a sandwich.
