“What’s nine times four? Thirty-Six. There are thirty-six fatal points on the body, and that times ten degrees of separation between each point equals 360 degrees.

They work with an all-or-nothing funding model, meaning you pledge a contribution but that contribution only gets accepted once the project has reached their funding target.
A retrospective look at the Norwegian electronic music duo’s visual output (BFI Southbank, Fri 11th Feb 2011)

The audio-visual behemoth is back with a little help from Solid Steel
More audiovisual shennanigans from the Soundcrash boys in conjunciton with Solid Steel veterans Hexstatic, DJ Food & DK and DJ Cheeba to celebrate (although belatedly) Ninja Tune’s 20th anniversary last year. This event was actually supposed to take place last year, but got cancelled because of snow and the world ending (in England, anyway). So now it’s going down this coming Saturday! Something to look forward to on a dreary, wet, cold, grey day (in England, anyway).
