AMNESIA SCANNER / FIN / GER
Amnesia Scanner is a Berlin-based music duo, performing arts group, experience design studio and production house, created by Finnish-born Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala. Founded in 2014, Amnesia Scanner’s approach is informed by a unique perspective on technology and the way it mediates contemporary experience. System vulnerabilities, information overload and sensory excess inform their work, which has found a home in both clubs and galleries.
Building on their mixtape ‘AS Live [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ]’ (2014), Amnesia Scanner’s critically acclaimed audio play ‘Angels Rig Hook’ (2015) laced a potpourri of dancefloor tactics with a machinic narrator. Their dual EPs for Young Turks, ‘AS’ and ‘AS Truth’ (2016), distilled this immersive environment into an abrasive collection of cryptorave tools. Coupled with the pop song structures that Amnesia Scanner employs for the first time in their debut album, ‘Another Life’ (September 2019), the avant-EDM productions evocatively explore a schizophrenic present marked by narratives of a slow apocalypse or salvation via technology.
They will be in WOS presenting an audiovisual performance titled ‘AS Oracle Live Show’.
