DIY documentaries

I like to document the parties I organize and travels I make within Finland and abroad. Sometimes it’s footage from the gigs and sometimes I also interview artists, dj’s, organizers and partygoers as well as document the journey itself in the form of a video journal. Below are a few such DIY journals/documentaries I’ve made. I film the footage with equipment I have available at the time, but in the future I’m hoping to invest in better quality equipment. You can watch more footage by visiting my Youtube channel.

Brainbashers: 2012 Tour

Brainbashers: 2012 Tour documentary teaser

At Brainbashers events we play hard, fast-paced and sometimes also experimental underground electronic music, which challenges the present-day mainstream’s views of dance music. The present-day, that has forgotten the pulse of intensive tribal dancing that can be felt in ones entire organism. The concept however is not puritanically focused on dance music, the listening experience is also important. Boundaries crossing extreme subgenres of electronic music can be found in for example industrial, digital punk, drum’n’bass, techno, psytrance and avant-garde. The core of the action however has always been hardcore. The speciality of the events has been to offer a wide scale of different *core styles. Kovaydin Vastarinta toured Finland throughout the year 2012 spreading its Brainbashers concept and making people dance to distorted bassdrums.

Besides the trip there are also interviews of organizers, artists, dj’s and party people from the Finnish *core scene, historical information on the local scenes, interviews with international artists and other material of hardcore life in Finland.

English and Finnish soft coded subtitles included. Chapters available on the Youtube page.
