# audiovisual experiments and creative misuse of technology
# DIY lo-fi/hi-fi performances and installations

PikseliÄHKY // pixelACHE is an international laboratory for creative experimenting with audiovisual technologies. After our successful event in Helsinki, the festival is arriving to New York and Montreal. The events consists of audiovisual performances, interactive cinema screenings and an exhibition of media art projects.

Most of the featured artists are coming from Helsinki, the hometown of pixelACHE. They present the fringe of the Finnish media art scene, emerging artists and yet-to-be-discovered art forms. The events also include like-minded artists from Stockholm, New York and Montreal.

Many of the projects are adventurous experiments and collaborations, especially put together for the festival. The theme for this year's edition is the art of VJ'ing, mixing and manipulating video material in a live performance situation.

The Montreal event is the opening of the new premises of Montreal based Society for Arts and Technology (SAT), a transdisciplinary centre dedicated to the creation, dissemination and conservation of digital culture. SAT is non-profit organization founded in 1996 by several organisers of the ISEA95 Montreal symposium. In two weeks SAT will relocate at its own permanent address on Saint-Laurent Boulevard: a cafe / documentation center and a multipurpose presentation space on 1 100 square meters (over 3 000 sqm in total).

PikseliÄHKY // pixelACHE laboratory series is organised by non-profit organisation Piknik Frequency.

PixelACHE Montreal is created in collaboration with SAT. The event is supported by Finnish Embassy in Canada, Olento, AVEK, and Amfibio.
