Please Join us for a night of films directed by Edward Quist with IIpo Vaisanen, Dirk Dresselhaus and Chandra Shukla in attendance.

KUVAPUTKI (38 min)

Directed by Edward Quist

Produced by Derek Gruen

Music by Pan Sonic

Digital artist Edward Quist developed imagery to Pan Sonic's experiments in synthesis. He combined cathode ray visions with Mika Vainio's and IIpo Vaisanen's uncompromising electronic sound, with the black and white abstraction of the film tying into the extremes of the music. Grounded in principals of self-restriction and minimal ism, Vainio and Valsanen, are immersed in the imagery of the cathode which seems to live and infect their physicality over the course of three parallel films as they merge with their own extreme sound and into Quist 's sinister vision.
