The second Ex-Centris program honours artists who have laboured imperturbably over the last two decades, producing experimental music without regard for genre classification or trends. It is with this in mind that we put forward a series of hybrid musical presentations, concentrated and excessive, designed to acknowledge past influences as well as the latest developments; we attempt to construct an audiovisual collage where restraint coexists with exuberance and overindulgence. Between Montrealer DAVID KRISTIAN, Finn ILPO VÄISÄNEN (member of Pan Sonic and master of atypical mood creations), and subversive duo PURE/DEKAM, it’s evident that a bond among artists has evolved—for example, a sincere appreciation for the industrial wave of the 1980s, for using outdated analog synthesizers or for all other potential methods of generating clear-cut, overwhelming sounds.
