Words from Unsound Festival - Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic / Ø)
In a cooperation with Unsound festival we proudly present exclusive interview with Mika Vainio, also known as Ø, a member of Finnish experimental electronic music duo Pan Sonic (originally called Panasonic). Just before his live performance at Manngha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology in Krakow, Vainio recalled the beginning of his carrier, defined the changes of the audiences, shared his personal opinion about nowadays life and his major influences.
"I listen to a lot of music. I’ve always been listening to all kinds of music. A lot of classical, certain kind of heavy metal, ethnical music, far East and Africa. I like Jamaican music from early 60′s to mid 70′s – ska, rock steady and early reggae. Also I really like old blues, acoustic blues."
