Bio

Born in 1978 Beirut Lebanon, Tony Elieh is a self taught musician, composer and photographer. 

He is one of the pioneers of rock and experimental music in Lebanon, founding member of the first post-rock group of post-war Lebanon, Scrambled Eggs, one of Beirut’s most prolific and talented rock bands of the early 2000’s, and remained with the group from its beginnings until its demise in 2015. 

Elieh, has recorded many acclaimed albums, and composed music for several movies including an award winning movie soundtrack.

 

At the same time, Elieh has started developing his own sound, expanding his approach to electric bass performance, allowing him to shift from punk rock and pop rock to improv, jazz, and experimental music.

Nowadays a member of the improvising groups Karkhana, Calamita, and Wormholes Electric, Elieh is part of the Lebanese experimental music scene where he has collaborated with Lebanese musicians such as Sharif Sehnaoui, Mazen Kerbaj, Raed Yassin, Charbel Haber, Tarek Atoui, Jad Atoui, Fadi Tabbal, Youmna Saba, Cynthia Zaven, Rabih Mroue, Jerusalem in My Heart a.o. 

International collaborations include Tony Buck, Saadet Türköz, Roger Turner, JD Zazie, Chris Corsano, The EX, Elliott Sharp, Magda Mayas, Jean Francois Pauvros, Hassan Khan, Mike Cooper, Michael Zerang, Jean Marc Montera, Sam Shalabi, Kayyam El Lami, Julian Santorios a.o.

 

Elieh has performed solo and with his own projects at renowned international festivals and venues such as the Berlinale, Ruhrtriennale, Berlin Biennale, Frankfurter Buchmesse, DAAD Mikromusik Festival Berlin, Konfrontationen, Austria, Klangspuren Festival, Austria, Le Guess Who?, Cannes Film festival, Printemps de la Danse Arabe,Paris, Guggenheim Museum, New York, Roskilde Festival a.o.

 

His interdisciplinary projects are numerous. He has composed and performed music for cine-concerts, as a homage to classic renowned silent movies with live improvised music.

He has also composed and performed live music for different plays and dance performances which have toured internationally.

On January 2021 Elieh received the Weltoffenes Berlin, a one year residency supported by Akademie Der Künste.

 

In addition to his musical practice, Tony Elieh is a self-taught photographer becoming one of the most sought-after and innovative photographers in Lebanon.

His work has been exhibited locally at Maria Halios Gallery (2014) and Nawfal palace Tripoli (2012); and internationally at Compass festival at Ausland Berlin (2013).

His work has been published in different magazines around the globe such as Curve, Elle Deco, Architectural digest USA, Bazaar, Officiel a.o.

His main specialization is in architecture and fashion photography, but he has worked extensively on the Beirut cultural life, taking pictures of live events and concerts on one hand, and building an impressive gallery of portraits of the actors of the local scene on the other.

Discography

 

Solo

It’s Good To Die Every now And Then (2017-Al Maslakh)

 

His debut solo album, released on Al Maslakh records.

With this work, the artist displays his multiple influences from oriental tonalities to sophisticated electronic sounds, playing with texture, volume, dynamics and space. Elieh has developed a unique and personalized technique of playing the electric bass, using multiple preparations such as sticks, vibrating tools and electronic music pedals in order to expand the possibilities of his instrument, at times transforming it into a synthesizer or a drum machine. The resulting work is both visually and sonically stimulating.
