I haven’t played in Helsinki for a while, but I will tomorrow at the Noise Traffic event VTT / Free Art Space Vilhovuorenkuja 15! I will livecode some weird synthesis that I’ve been cooking this Winter/last Autumn. Maybe more abstract stuff this time.
Plenty of other acts as well!
A collaboration between sensorium space and station of commons

‘The sonic flesh has no dermis, no skin, but inhabits
the possibility of the world with its own formless possibility’
– Salome Voegelin, 2019
Noise Traffic is an event hosting a plurality of voices from local and international artists, collectives, and art communities. Its aim is to promote artistic discourses and to discuss the political possibilities of sound, voice, and performance. Noise Traffic will take place on the 14th of January 2023 at Vapaan Taiteen Tila (Free Arts Space) in Helsinki and is the first one of an event series.
In ‘Noise Traffic’, sonic flesh is an immaterial membrane holding up a complexity of sequences, and exposes the semantic infrastructures of a given context and a place. In its capacity to inhabit it also mobilises and maps out societal dimensions which are often unheard. ‘Noise Traffic’ approaches the indeterminate possibilities of the sonic flesh and reinforces the complexity of sequences of those voices that are outside of any form of representation and provides them with a playground to create their own set of rules that exist, often, as an ‘other’ world within the existing world.
