15:00 Seiji Kokeguchi & Emil Sana

Seiji Kokeguchi is a Helsinki-based Japanese composer and sound artist.

He released his first album “Drift” on the Helsinki-based label Post—Rift on April 2023.

Emil Sana is a half-French half-Finnish composer, producer and sound artist, currently based in Helsinki, Finland. He has composed the soundtrack to multiple award-winning short films and a TV-series. He is currently working on feature film projects in Finland and in the U.S. Sana also works with sound art and installations as well as production and songwriting for various album projects.

 

15:45 Half A Map

Half A Map @halfamap is a sound project by Jukka Inehmo, exploring long durations and the interplay of harshness and gentleness. Sound sources range from hardware synths via tin cans to the husk of dead sound card.

16:30 Karkaa

Karkaa is a Helsinki-based experimental musician. He explores maximalist soundscapes, posing ambient, experimental and club music elements side by side.

17:15 Ikola

Ikola is the moniker used by Hannu Ikola, a long time electronic music producer and DJ, nowadays researching the experimental frontiers of ambient and electronica. With his vast musical know-how, he constructs ethereal ambiences which will captivate and astonish the listener.



18:00 Heli Hartikainen & Noise Trees

Noise Trees @noisetre.es is experimental musician and composer Jukka Koops. His music revolves around repetition, fragile textures, sustained sound, and menacing walls of sound.

Heli Hartikainen is a boundary-breaking saxophonist, clarinetist, composer, and sound artist whose aesthetics derive from a pursuit of enduring textures, functions, and forms. As a saxophonist, Hartikainen is a passionate instrumentalist who constantly pushes the boundaries of their instrument (and themselves) ever further. Experimentation and comprehensiveness are at the core of Hartikainen’s creative work, where abstractions, meaning-seeking, concepts, and an insatiable love for sound playfully intertwine.



19:00 Jori Larres

Jori Larres @jorilarres creates layered and meticulously composed sound structures of synthetic parallelism, where conceptual Eno encounters meandering soundscapes and polyrhythmic bursts.

20:00 Satoi

Satoi is the moniker of Tuukka Jääskeläinen, an experimental electronic music artist from Helsinki, Finland. The soundscape he creates is formed of ethereal chords, melodies, noises, rhythms, everything that a futuristic landscape would entail, without forgetting the synths and interference that is yearning for the forgotten past. He is part of the Post—Rift family of artists and has released on Signature Dark.

21:00 Vladislav Decay

A special set for a special occasion.

22:00 Kaukolampi

Timo Kaukolampi is a Helsinki-based experimental music artist and self-taught composer, producer and meta band leader. His goal and ethos is to destroy and re-create his musical output with every new project and release. In search of uncharted realms of music, he has given us projects such as K-X-P and Opel Bastards. These days he is mostly focusing on his solo art and film music.

23:00 Dissolution Step

Dissolution Step, the sonic alter ego of Finnish techno luminary Samuli Kemppi, emerges as a distinct force within the realm of ambient and experimental music. With a foundation rooted in techno's rhythmic precision, Dissolution Step transcends boundaries to explore the ethereal intersection of thought and sound.

The atmospheric textures and nuanced rhythms crafted by Dissolution Step weave a spellbinding narrative, inviting listeners to embark on an immersive journey where the mind dissolves into the transformative currents of ambient exploration. Each composition serves as a testament to Kemppi's versatility and his ability to navigate diverse sonic landscapes.

In Dissolution Step's sonic tapestry, the boundaries blur, allowing for a unique blend of introspection and auditory exploration. With an enigmatic touch, Dissolution Step beckons audiences to lose themselves in the intricate dance between mind and music, unveiling a captivating world where sound becomes a conduit for profound transformation.

 00:00 Mesak

Mesak hails from the ground zero of modern Finnish electronic music, both mentally and geographically. The Helsinki-based musician has enjoyed a two decade career in some of the most fascinating nooks and crannies of the Finnish scene, from clubs to galleries and in different groups as well as a solo act. Styles and names are bountiful and plenteous, from the electro bangers of Mr Velcro Fastener to the ethno rap of Ya Tosiba and the twisted downbeat of the Harmönia label and so on... On his latest release ("Katosiko se" on Nsyde records) Mesak "invites listeners to explore a range of emotions and moods, from the contemplative to the ecstatic, with a sense of sincerity and authenticity that is extraordinarily rare.”



Matti Pentikäinen

Matti Pentikäinen, MattiP, TWWTH, the man with many monikers has made a special spoken word + drone piece for the festival. The piece is exhibited in the pop-up store and with LRXY oscilloscope visuals in the backroom during the event.
