Elisa Faires has been singing since the age of 8 years. Her early beginnings were rooted in choral singing. In college she studied opera and classical music as well as electronic music. One of her teachers was Dr. Robert Moog. Since then she has performed and recorded with several different projects such as Astral Magick Soundtrack, Paw of Zing, Imaginary Numbers, Squeegy-G, The Wood Bunnies, and now Xambuca. For the past few years she has been experimenting with vocals and harmonies using multitracking, loops, effects, and electronics. She has had a few sound installations and live sound installations of her piece "Photosynthesis" for The Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center.
She composes music as well for Butoh dance and movement and performance art. She has composed and played for
Butoh Legacy Asheville, Anemone Dance Theater, and Cilla Vee Life Arts.
Though she has been recording and performing music for most of her life with various others and including herself in countless projects, Elisa has completed her debut solo album entitled 'Elixir No .444., which she's worked on for years As the title implies, Elisa turns her vocals into an elixir of 'aural alchemy' where one hears a plethora of vocal ambient textures and visceral sonic landscapes. 'Elixir 444' is a definitive representation of what Faires does live as an electronic musician while revealing the range of her vocal ability rooted in the classical. Faires' vocals emanate sensations from an ethereal other world while her music invokes a timeless atmospheric familiarity; together culminating into the soundtrack for a dream.
