Read full interview

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."

One day I hope to be rich just so I can afford to support more weird, great music. And to once again have a nice stereo (even just some thrifted hodge podge) to hear all the glorious raw buzzy visceral fight or flight sonics in the maximum high-fidelity detail it deserves.

Her other projects include the MacArthur funded Gone Gitmo, a virtual Guantanamo Bay Prison; Cap & Trade, an interactive exploration of the carbon markets built with Frontline World and CIR; Ipsress which investigates detainees held in stress positions; and Three Generations, a newsgame on the California eugenics movement that premiered at 2011 Games For Change.

My favorite post of the year is BACK

(via broken-language)



"An old aunt who was a little bit deaf had dinner every Sunday in our home, in the minister’s home, and she came to me, and said, ‘Now little Ingmar, what do you intend to be when you have grown up?’ I said, ‘Director!’ And she said, ‘What do you mean? Like on a streetcar? A conductor?’ You know, it was my decision, and I don’t know exactly why. As a child, I was very shy—I still am—and I had difficulties with contact with other human beings. I was extremely aggressive and, of course, I felt very, very unhappy. To get in contact with other people, I used the theater. At the beginning, I just had to pick up beer and coffee for the actors, but slowly I got the opportunity to direct. And they almost killed me and threw me out. My first production was a complete catastrophe, but I had such a longing, a need and a desire for contact with other people. First with actors, and then even more and more also with the audience. So when I started, I didn’t know why I wanted to work with theater and film."
"I have maintained open channels with my childhood. I think it may be that way with many artists. Sometimes in the night, when I am on the limit between sleeping and being awake, I can just go through a door into my childhood and everything is as it was—with lights, smells, sounds and people… I remember the silent street where my grandmother lived, the sudden aggressivity of the grown-up world, the terror of the unknown and the fear from the tension between my father and mother."
— Ingmar Bergman

World’s first robot SUICIDE as family return to find Roomba cleaning gadget had turned to ash - Mirror Online
"Somehow it seems to have reactivated itself and made its way along the work surface where it pushed a cooking pot out of the way and basically that was the end of it," fireman Helmut Kniewasser told The Daily Mail. "I don’t know about the allegations of a robot suicide but the homeowner is insistent that the device was switched off—it’s a mystery how it came to be activated and ended up making its way to the hotplate."

Chelybinsk meteorite impact video. The frozen pond where the main mass was recently recovered. Not much to look at on a grainy surveillance video, really, but still an amazing document of a rare event. Meteorites are very common, but not at the size where they are noticeable, much less blow out a whole bunch of windows over a significant region as they enter Earth’s atmosphere.
