Erkki Kurenniemi - DIMI-A

October 21st -14th November 2004. Friday- Sunday: 12 noon- 5pm & by appointment Map

HTTP presented a documentary film by Mika Taanila about Erkki Kurenniemi, 'an unsung pioneer of electronic art', and Kurenniemi's DIMI-A, 'a digital musical instrument with associative memory, an early computer-based sampler'. 'Kurenniemi's career represents a surprisingly natural blend of music, film, computers, robotics, science and art. Kurenniemi, collecting everything around him, records his thoughts, observations, objects and images constantly, with manic precision, with the ultimate goal of merging man andmachine - reconstructing the human soul.
