20 - 22 October 2017: The Listening Screen


The Listening Screen is the pitch-black auditorium, for which Mika Taanila has produced two exclusive sound installations of music by his collaborators and mentors, both of whom sadly passed away earlier this year.

The Listening Screen I: Mika Vainio

In this tribute, Taanila manipulates samples, sounds and compositions never before heard outside of the cutting room, from his extensive collaborations with the Pan Sonic musician.

The Listening Screen II: Erkki Kurenniemi

Taanila revisits private dairy and field recordings of Kurenniemi, as well as the sounds of his instruments. An intensely personal and private rumination on Kurenniemi’s adamant and inspiring will to live.
