Live together with Hermann Lipinski at the Gasometer Oberhausen again
For a laser show, we played three sets on 24th Juli 2010. Ofcause, every set was a bit different. It is a shame we did not see the laser show, because the lasers pumped their photons from the back of us above us.

(search for EL-KA there)
On the last saturday of October 2006 we played a two part live jam with René van der Wouden from Gouda/The Netherlands inside the huge old gas stroing tower (300 feets high). We had a good time of improvised playing like TD did in 1976.
If you like the music, you may print this cover Michael Kathke designed.
Additional Supply ;)
Here are some recordings of our rehearsal for the planetarium concert that took place in April 2006. Again all improvised. Sorry, but the recording quality is not superb at all. But we concentrate more on the live playing.

The ELKA-Keyboard in the front
The traditional december Schallwende EM-Breakfast in Dusseldorf/Germany was as usual in Dusseldorf/Germany. There Ron Boots and Harold van der Heiijden played as well as HaJo Liese und Till Kopper. This was the founding event of EL-KA. HaJo and Till met many years before, but the met the first time to play together in public a few days before this event. During these rehearsals the name "EL-KA" was born. It origines form the way you would pronounce the first letters of our family names (Liese and Kopper) if you would say them one after the other. In english this play on words does not work at all. And by some strange :-) coincident this is sound and nearly spellt like the italian company ELKA that became famous for their ELKA Rhapsody in the mis seventies. HaJo and Till both own such an ELKA Rhapsodies for some time now.
February 2004 HaJo Liese (born 1957) visited Till Kopper (born 1965) for playing to gether music for the first time. They both agreed on the style of the imrpovised 1977 playing of Tangerine Dream as the starting point. The results of the about 70 minutes recorded straight from the mixing board (no multitracks or post recording edits other then fade ins and outs) can be heard and downloaded here in 5 shortended extracts as mp3 files.
