PikseliAHKY // 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 consist 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 are emerging artists representing yet-to-be-discovered art forms from the fringe of the Finnish media art scene.

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 pixelACHE event in New York is presented by the extraordinary Gershwin Hotel, with their gallery, performance space and rooftop dedicated for the event. We will also do a laptop jam session with SHARE at Openair (Sunday, June 1) and the event will finish with an audiovisual concert at Galapagos in Williamsburg (Tuesday, June 3) as a part of the New Music on North Sixth series.

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).
