Here we list a bunch of things that we made as a collective.

Sometimes we are asked to do projects and sometimes we initiate them ourselves. It can be things like art festivals, exhibitions, concerts, film recordings or livestreams.

Take a look and make sure to give us a text if you would like to collaborate in similiar stuff!


We proudly hosted the infamous at home festival Lassapaloza in our legendary gray villa. Several artists from Umeå exhibited their works and we were visited by musicalacts such as, among others, Svindel and Från Mars.


We were visited by the alternative rock band JOHN LUKAS who gave us a unique performance. Our eminent photographers and videographers made this into a one of a kind live musicvideo experience.

2015 - Music tech fest

We made art installations in three different rooms at a music hacker festival called Music Tech Fest.

Room 1: "Silent forest".

A room decorated with organic elements of the forest like timber and leaves. The four walls in the room had TV-screens showing synced 360 videos of peaceful locations. We welcomed the guests by serving coffee and fika making the experience feel more like a picnic. The purpose was to transport the visitors from the loud festival that was held inside the city and into a space of tranquility surrounded by nature.

Room 2: "The bubble room"

We pored bubble water on a transparent table with depth, making it into a sort of standing pool. Above the table we installed microphones that captured the sounds coming from the bubble table. We applied intense echo effects to the audio and sent it out to multiple headphones so visitors could listen. The room was dark except for the colored lights lighting up the bubble table from beneath. Purpose was to immerse the user into a self-created bubblet universe. 

Room 3: "JAM room"

We set up music instruments like electric guitars, cigarr-box guitars, drums and microphones to a PA-system. In addition we had midi-keyboards connected to a computer so visitors could implement their own sound packs to the midis. This and objects that had special microphones attached to them making another addition to the orchestra. To complement the music we had a projector showing visual effects and lights reacting to the music coming from the instruments. The purpose was to make people to freely experiment with instruments and sounds without knowing how to play. Also to explore the diversity of analouge and digital and make them to come together in a harmony.
