To speak about Mika Vainio is to speak about one of the strongest profiles in the recent history of electronic music. An active artist since the early 90‘s, Mika Vainio is the half of one of the most prominent projects around industrial music, noise and experimental electronic music: Pan Sonic. Mika Vainio is a true pioneer and master of the most abrasive and less comfortable sounds.
Man of a thousand faces and collaborations, known for outstanding works as Ø, Philus or Tekonivel or collaborations with artists as Björk, Alan Vega, Chicks on Speed, Alva Noto, John Duncan, Vladislav Delay or Fennesz. Mika Vainio’s career has no cracks. He has achieved to sculpt over these 20 years, a personal world where the most pure and grinding sound flows between drones, avan-techno and sharp noise, but above all constantly questions the physical propoerties of the sound.
