Elph is a name given by the U.K. elecro-pagan band Coil to the music that comes out of electronics on its own volition, without being consciously thought out or composed by the artists. The members of the band, John Balance and Peter Christopherson, think of it as a third member of the band, and have realeased several albums under the name Elph. In my opinion, these are some of their best, regardles of how they were concieved.
