About River Ellis
My work is a movie scene captured in an audio recording. There are stacks of recording that come together to create repetitions and differences. The sounds include improvised guitar, field recordings of places I visit, and public domain recordings that are altered, distorted, and transformed to various degrees. What is then presented is an open invitation to explore the place the song creates within oneself.
I am a musician exploring the imaginative world created through the guitar and digital production software. I currently live in Beckley and have spent a majority of my life in southern West Virginia. The work I am making today started at the beginning of the Covid pandemic as a project to create music for a friends YouTube videos. Since then, my work has become a source of personal inspiration and creative satisfaction that I wish to follow wherever it leads. .
