Kuusi Palaa: view from within season one

25 April 2018

The Biathlon system that I have been co-developing since 2016 has been in use at Kuusi Palaa, a cooperatively operated project space in Helsinki. Kuusi Palaa opened on 1 March 2018 and will run at least until the end of June. The idea for Kuusi Palaa was to continue using the Biathlon tools that Temporary used (and operating in the same physical space), but to further decentralise the financing...

About Temporary (donate, please!)

25 April 2018

Since September of last year, my day-to-day attention has been focused on Temporary, which we call a 'sandbox for practice-based research into experimental interactive formats’ in Helsinki.

I’m one of the initial organisers of the project, which we started to collect different approaches to culture production, specifically focusing on participatory, trans-disciplinary events....

14 October 2013

Hi everyone!  Does anyone want to come to the west coast of Finland and wander around petrol stations for a few hours, picking up various random objects on the way, and then building narratives and histories around them? 

I totally copped out on a title, but Yet -unnamed explorations is Wednesday the 23rd of October, and part of the fascianting Experimental Event ...

Recent things.

19 January 2012
Dispatches from a website I do a piss-poor job of keeping up-to-date:

  •  I've been based in or around Tallinn for one year now.  Ptarmigan I can say has been going well; it's been an amazing thing and it's more momentum than inertia here.  We've had too much going on to fully talk about here, as we've had something like 80 events since April, but there's lots in the works for 2012,...

Oakwhistle live show in Tallinn: 17. september 2011

19 January 2012
I'm going to perform solo/live for the first time in ages, as Oakwhistle again.  It's at the Soodevahe festival in Tallinn on the 17th of this month.  Expect something along the vibe of the Boat Trip LP only maybe sloppier - but (un)focused around hesitation, delicacy, and misguided stabs at beauty.

The 15,000 Day Boat Trip: now available!

19 January 2012
I'd like to announce (with great pleasure) that The 15,000 Day Boat Trip is finally available! 8mm038lp

This is an LP that I recorded during my final year in Glasgow, in 2007.  It's one long piece split over two sides , and I have been describing it to people as "instrumental music".  To be a bit more detailed, Boat Trip contains similar concrète assemblages to what we did in Lied Music, but...

'Last Night on Earth' tape

19 January 2012
Ikuisuus has just released a split casette between Last Night on Earth and New Yaki.

Lastnightnewyaki

I appear on the Last Night on Earth side playing esraj, along with Jani Hirvonen, Mari Imppola and Jari Koho.  This was recorded ages ago after I just moved to Finland and was probably the first time I had played with anyone in months.  I haven't heard the recording in awhile but it is available for...

New code on icewhistle.com

19 January 2012
This site runs a custom-built content management system that I wrote when I was teaching myself Rails.  As it was a learning project, the code was full of bugs and suffered from generally poor design.  This afternoon I ripped out the guts and bashed out some new code, essentially from scratch.  The goal is reduce the ridiculous number of 500 errors that was occuring because I was...
