2017 was another busy year, quite work-focused (as usual). After some contemplation, some accomplishments will follow. Scroll down for obscure notes called “plans for 2018″…
TH€€€F, a sound project that had been incubated for some time, surfaced with a release on PARAFERAL Sound in February. Also a special TH€€€F radio project Shred.fm was presented on location in Espoo in May, and made later available for download.
Feedback – solo exhibition at Galleria 2, Pirkkala in April. Subtitled “samples from cyclic processes”, the show presented works related to feedback, recycling and loops.
A collaborative film/installation project Out 2 presented at the Research Pavilion in Venice Biennale in August.
My video piece I WANT MY REVOLUTION toured Europe (plus a visit to Peru) as part of MUU‘s PV7 program: London, Dublin, Umeå, Vaasa, Lima, Berlin, Turku, Poznan, Vilnius…
The soundtrack by RØUG was also released for free download in three variations on PARAFERAL Sound.

Some plans for 2018, in notes-to-self spirit:
+ More TH€€€F, on record and live.
+ Two new cinematic works in progress to be completed.
+ Finish my Master’s thesis for Aalto university.
+ Collaborations with acquaintances old & new.
+ Archival excavations, to let some selected old works (buried but not forgotten) be seen in new light.
+ Last but certainly not least: Go out more than last year, to meet old and new friends.
