Artist Statement:


    Three years ago street performer and new media artist Tim Bray from sunny Gold Coast, Australia, was in Helsinki with a broken heart and a broken pogo stick. He saw a cruise ship being built and had a dream of playing home keyboards on a ship leaving Helsinki. The dream has become reality.

    CasioNova and his band AutoChord perform a history of 80’s home keyboards demonstrating the joy of electronic music making. The show utilizes reconfigured 80’s technologies such as home keyboards, a Commodore 64 and an Atari 2600, along with projections, physical theatre and comedy, and of course some incredible sounds and songs from “obsolete” equipment. In addition to the stage music performance CasioNova will also perform a street theatre piece using a solar sound system, and conduct an open workshop for a Casio orchestra.
