The evening started with a splendid salmon buffet (flown in by our Finnish guests!)... Juha Huuskonen then dazzled with his presentation of PixelACHE artists (including some truly inspired circuit-bent instruments). The evening was due to culminate with the enchanting sounds of Memnon (music duo Eva Alkula and Ville Hyvönen), in a warm-up gig for their Ultrasound tour... but then Shane & band just happened to pop by for a midnight poetry-improv jam. The fade-out was mixed the never-equalled Equal-I....

* Finnish finish for ambientv.net's Manu & Mukul *
Ultrasound 2005 (www.ultrasound.ws) presents 'Finnish Partition',
a showcase of finnish electronic music and art. The finnish
program is put together by Juha Huuskonen, the chief of PixelACHE
festival circus (www.pixeache.ac). The program features some
of the highlights of the PixelACHE festival editions.
If you cannot make it to Huddersfield (you definitely should
try to!) then you can catch a glimpse of the program at the
event which is hosted by ambienttv.net. This 'finnish finish ritual' marks also
the 15 sabatical months ambientTV.NET's Manu & Mukul
are taking from London...
