Bad Loop live (Helsinki)
Bad loop is a Finnish electronic artist whose music, characterized by ethereal soundscapes and melodies, rough and somewhat complex rhythms with some DSP wizardry, gained popularity among Down tempo / IDM fans after releasing Lumme EP on Kahvi Collective in 2002. Later in 2005 he released the melody-ridden mini album titled Luo, which was dubbed as “Delicious in a way the ’80s could never be” by Igloo mag. Since then he has been performing in clubs and festivals from UK to Russia and tweaking more music for forthcoming releases in his home studio.
Bad loop will be performing with Jari Saukkonen of Coral Visuals, who has developed a graphics engine for presenting impressive visuals during live music performances. In contrast to traditional VJ systems the Coral visuals engine does not rely on pre-rendered video clips but displays the effects in real-time 3D. The system also takes heavy advantage of real-time synchronization between the performers and the visuals.
