Amnesia Scanner

Founded in 2014 by the Finnish Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala, Amnesia Scanner's approach is informed by a unique perspective on technology and the way it mediates contemporary experience. System vulnerabilities, information overload and sensory excess inform their work, which has found a home in both clubs and galleries.
Their debut album Another Life (2018) represents all the sentience of the duet, striken by the use of both human and inhuman voices. Pan Daijing’s vocals follows a disembodied voice called "Oracle" of which vocal performance ranges from exuberant mania to anxious dread and beyond. Coupled with the pop song structures that Amnesia Scanner employs for the first time, the avant-EDM (Electronic Dance Music) productions of "Another Life" evocatively explore a schizophrenic present marked by narratives of a slow apocalypse or salvation via technology, trill hope and casual threat.
