Baltic Boxwars: Northern League (UK + FI + EST)
The first edition of 'Baltic Boxwars', a concept-event involving cardboard-clad 'warriors' who engage in gladiator-style fight-performances, in music-club and outdoor contexts.
Larry Button (FI)
Larry Button & 3V are buskers from central Finland who play improvised monotonic electronic music. Usually they have little robot animals with them as their co-pilots through the dangerous drunken streets. Winters are still a bit too cold here for streetplaying so they spend the coldest season resting their bones and taking care of their pets. Sometimes they take them to play at clubs if somebody wants. They are the real entertainers.
LB & 3V tries to get the all time all star supergroup of selected players to their first gig at Pixelache and last ever. If they can only catch them...
"The end of all music. JS666 is just one man, but his powers of musical destruction are limitless. From sanity-threatening happy hardcore -ditties and dirty gabber beatdowns to lewd edits and spastic drum n' bass." - if society
"The funniest record of 2007. No shit, it doesn't get better than this. The Pulttibois of Gabber, happy hardcore happier than ever and drum n' bass not to make you dance but to laugh until you spoil your pants. Essential to everybody." - verdura
Desert Planet (FI) feat. Association of experimental electronics (FI)
Desert Planet live act is something like a space themed performance with bizarre and attractive pixelled video projections. The band is wearing white space suits with green helmets in the spirit of b-class science fiction movies. In Pixelache Desert planet is performing with Association of experimental electronics. They bring their buzzing joysticks together to produce some distorted electronics spacepunk- session - humming and distorted electronic noises with some dancebeats and game-oriented disco inferno.
Pleasures and Days (FI)
Pleasures and Days was formed in the year 2002 in Helsinki, Finland, by a few like-minded individuals to create perfect popular music for the people of the 21st century. The project is a late result of the recent perfection of the forms of Western popular music and the democratization of digital music technology. The music of Pleasures and Days is generated semi-automatically by mathematical algoritms from the collective memory banks of Western high and low culture, assembling its remnants of trash and art together as political simulation while operating musical microelements long since phossilised into solid structures. All pretence of both expressive originality and stylistic credibility is abandoned in favour of strictly academic study of the obscenity so apparent in popular music's current, permanent, final state.
The programme of Pixelache has been put together by Antti Ahonen / Association of experimental electronics, except the Boxwars fight that was included as an improvised bonus.
