2013/12/06 Baltic Diving Co. performance @ Stalker festival, Tallinn

On 6/12/2013, Baltic Diving Co. (me and Joel Tammik) performed at Stalker festival, at KultuuriKatel, Tallinn. The festival was inspired by Tarkovski’s movie Stalker, who was partially shot at the building which is now Kultuurikatel (a reconverted power plant). The headliner for the festival was Laurel Halo, and artists active in the local electronic music scene also performed.

2013/05 Coaching at AppCampus Finland

On 23/5/2013, I participated in the AppCampus initiative, as a coach. From “AppCampus is an €18 million joint project of Aalto University, Microsoft and Nokia. We offer financing and coaching in mobile technology, design and usability to Windows Phone developers.”

I coached 4 teams, 2 hour sessions for each. The teams were mostly developing music related apps. The coaching was done together with Gokce Taskan, who I have collaborated in different projects in the past. We gave the teams advice regarding interaction design and user experience.


Updated September 2013: I coached a second wave of AppCampus teams in September 2013, in a longer coaching process (5, 12 and 19 September).

Presentation at St. Petersburg State University of Film and Television

Event: Digital Media Arts Forum
Place: St. Petersburg State University of Film and Television
Date: 18-19/10/2012

On the 18th and 19th October, I participated in the Digital Media Arts Forum, organised by the St. Petersburg State University of Film and Television. I had two presentations: one on the 18th, focusing on the history and state of the art of visual music; and another on the 19th, focusing on my work as Video Jack.

The audience was very motivated and participative, particularly on the second and longer presentation. It took place in the main building of the St. Petersburg State University of Film and Television, an old Orthodox monastery reconverted into a university (the main lectures took place in the ancient altar room), and the oldest film university in Russia. Hope to collaborate more to this University, where I had already presented my work in 2008.
