Elatu Nessa

Elatu Nessa is a solo project by Helsinki-based artist Rusto Myllylahti. His music is homemade and meditative, using a combination of psychedelic guitars, chants, blues hooks and loops. It is a soundtrack for snowy fields, desert dreams, for washing dishes and for making love. Self-made, ready-made, and found sounds are massaged together with blues guitars from the dumpster and imaginary computers. Since 2015 Elatu Nessa has taken form on the road in and around Europe, and the music has been captured on four solo releases and on selected compilations.

Elatu Nessa contributed to the High Tides Programme of Maths, matter & body.

520 [excerpt], 2016
Elatu Nessa’s 520 is a 52-minute afternoon meditation session that was recorded live on a cold dark day in the winter of 2016. The music was made next to snowy fields and a valley filled with bats and empty bird nests.
