We were deeply saddened to hear about the death of Mika Vainio last night, a hugely influential figure in experimental electronic music as a solo artist, in numerous collaborations, and of course in the pioneering Finish outfit Pan Sonic. He was and will continue to be a big influence on all of us here at Cyclic.
We’re spending the weekend listening to his incredible music and reflecting upon his unique approach to sound. We suggest you do the same.
Here’s an interview we did with him in 2014.
And here is a review of his Life (It Eats You Up) from eMego from 2011.
Enjoy his live set from a few years ago at The National Gallery in Oslo – Trollklangveggen
