artist, Russell Haswell creates brutally physical soundscapes
that alternate between hard noise and quieter low-end frequencies.
Formed by Hild Sofie Tafjord and Maja
Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje of Norway, Fe-mail’s playful noise
music is totally improvised with analogue electronics and acoustic
instruments such as pan flutes and an accordion.
Our expatriates in Barcelona, Pan sonic,
return home for their first live show in Finland since the
first Avanto Helsinki Media Art Festival in
2000, filling the Gloria venue with their floating atmospherics
and hypnotic beats’n’bleeps.
Built in 1968 by Erkki Kurenniemi,
the Electric Quartet is a collective instrument for four players.
Save for the Kurenniemi tribute night on Thursday,
it has not been played live since 1970. Now, the original line-up
of M.A. Numminen, Peter Widén, Arto Koskinen, and Tomi
Parko return with a performance of the one original composition,
Kaukana väijyy ystäviä – där borta
lurar några vänner (“There Are Friends
Lurking in the Distance”). In the late 60’s,
Numminen took the Electric Quartet to a youth festival in
hundreds of people to leave mid-performance. He still considers
this as one of the highlights of his artistic career.
DJ O Samuli A will also be playing slow-fi
electronica and Mr Turntable Washington will present a shameless
Philip Jeck rip-off.
