The number eleven is more than fascinating in several ways. Not only that it is ‘one louder’. …it is mystically described as the number of strength.
At this stage I will tell you how taking ’11i’ as a pseudonyme 4 me occured…
A short story about the use of 11i & what it means
It all started around the millenium where the Alsterelfe Firepoi thing began. From this time on, mates and fellowes started calling me ‘Elfi’ which is sort of a german short form for Alsterelfe. They said, I was looking like an elve (‘Elf’) with those poi spinned around me like spreading my wings…
‘Elf’ is the german word 4 the number 11 and because the german word ‘Elfi’ is pronounced like ‘El Fee’ the ‘i’ was appended to the numbers. And as I am very into using numbers instead of letters I liked shortening this into 11i.
You may have noticed the retrospective aspect on associating the elve thing in all that – I don’t know why, but this fairytale turns on & on, even I did not use this name the latest years. But 4 sure, whenever you will hear the names Alsterelfe, Elfi or 11i according to the psytrance scene in Germany they seem to point on me.
Nowadays I prefere using the name ‘Calmagize‘ – which stands 4 my combination of calming melodies & energizing grooves during my chill out projects. This seems to be more practical according 2 musical activities with no questions 2 B left unanswered.
