Dérive is a new audiovisual project by Hannu Karjalainen, which brings together the artist´s both channels of expression. In the performance we see videos, which Karjalainen has filmed when he has worked in artist residencies in different parts of the world, i.e. in Shanghai, Paris, Oslo and Berlin. Karjalainen and Tuhkanen play live electronic music channeling urban wanderings in an unorthodox and free-spirited way.
