PIKSEL17 festival for elektronisk kunst og fri teknologi

Laptop Maniax

21:00 @ Bergen Kjøtt

Andreja Andric, Eli Guðnason, Søren Krag

Laptop Maniax combines indian-inspired synthesizer melodies, outbursts from hacked drum machines, relentless one bit pulses from custom made software, and shitcore video collage into an irreverent mix of lyricism, structure and chaos.

Søren Krag
Independent artist

I am a graduate from the Jutland art academy and have been working with sound for many years often connected to a visual expression. I work primarily with older software(and harware) where I exploit glitches and use the software beyond its original intent. I utilize different modes of programming and hardware to create non-linear automated loops.
