Live electronic music on Thursday 18.04.2024, 18:00–20:00 at Nomen Nescio Store, Mikonkatu 2, Helsinki. Free entry. Warmly welcome!

Future Chroma, an ambient duo comprising Stiletti-Ana and Casio G Url, ignited their musical journey fueled by a shared passion for creating dreamy electronic music. Their collaboration sparked in 2018 over long jam sessions, evolving into an EP released in 2019 under Haista Records. Rejecting industry pressures, they thrive on crafting ethereal melodies and cosmic sounds that reflect their unfiltered musical vision. Their debut album, "I," recorded deep in the forests of Southern Finland, was released on Haista Records 2023. Influenced by Berlin school ambient and electronic music pioneers like Tangerine Dream and Suzanne Ciani, Future Chroma's music defies categorization, embodying their boundless creativity and love for the craft.

Esa Ruoho's "Plugged Into Nothing" is a live performance concept that embraces risk by starting from scratch with unplugged cables as the sole sound source. This technique, which might seem like a sound engineer's nightmare due to the inherent hums and clicks, demands quick sampling and manipulation of these unintended sounds into music. This idea originated when Ruoho stepped in as a last-minute replacement for a canceled act at the 2019 Polyphonic festival in Helsinki. Instead of using exquisite boutique gear, Ruoho chose to use two cables plugged into nothing, turning accidental noises into deliberate sounds. Ten performances in, "Plugged Into Nothing" continues to evolve, its outcome influenced by the venue's electrical and audio setup, time, and even temperature. This project is an invitation to experience the unpredictable transformation of "undesirable" sounds into engaging performances.

This event is a collaboration between Nomen Nescio, Post—Rift, and friends. Helsinki-based Post—Rift is a record label and an audiovisual art collective exploring the fault lines of electronic sound and image, seeking familiarity in the unknown.
