Staalplaat Soundsystem plays Yokomono (Live Act)
Mat Pogo (Live Act)
Doors open at 21:30, concerts starts at 22:30

YOKOMONO consists of 10 vinyl killers – toy car record players, each customised with its own fm transmitter. The sound will come through a set of radios that receives the signal transmitted by the vinyl killers
ŠThe fact that we transmit with 10 fm transmitters at the same time means that each transmitter is effecting the other. These interference and the unstable media that is transmitting makes the whole set unpredictable and hard to control, making Yokomono unique and adventures.
YOKOMONO got at Prix Ars Electronica 2006 a Honorary Mention Digital Musics
“delightful wireless symphony” (The wire 2008)

Within the current mood of worshipping the latest technology in media art, Staalplaat Soundsystem provides a breath of fresh air, reminding us of the 100-year tradition of noise-making machines, in which “mad” inventors and various kinds of artists operating in the margins of the art world meet.
All these installations were made with the same low tech working philosophy, making an installation look so simple that you think” I can do that.The works by Staalplaat Soundsystem are usually brilliant in their simplicity, the first impression leaving no room for technological mystification. (Anton Nikkilä / Avanto festival Helsinki)

Second act is non other then Mat Pogo and his collection of voices and fake voices

Entry: 3 – 5 euros

Organized in collaboration with Staalplaat.
