Home / Biography / Elend



Franco-Austrian ensemble Elend created in the first ‘90’s and in the beginning devoted itself to interpreting a historical, three-part ‘prayer of darkness’ — the ‘Lecons de Tenebres’ — which, based on Roman Catholic liturgy is usually to be performed within the 3 holy days before Easter. Cautiously orchestrated for optimum dramatic impact, this gothic/ambient routine of three people appeared by means of 1994’s Lecons de Tenebres, 1996’s Les Tenebres du Dehors and 1998’s The Umbersun / Au Trefond des Tenebres, with 1997’s Weeping Evenings offering the only real departure from Elend’s exclusive business. A five-year silence adopted, and the trio of Iskander Hasnawi, Sebastien Roland and Renaud Tschimer resurrected Elend with 2003’s Winds Devouring Males — itself predicated on a French poem describing an odyssey of self-discovery and resuming the group’s flirtation using the ambient avant-garde.
