Kalle Kalima Pentasonic at Flow Festival 2010 Helsinki Finland

In this project guitarist Kalle Kalima creates the music through Surround system with his
Electric Guitar and Electronics and VJ Ville Lempiäinen creates the video images. Kalle Kalima
uses different effects and preparations and sends the sound of his electric guitar through 3
samplers in 5 amps that are located around the listeners. The music is built from small cells
into orchestral unity. The compositions are influenced by minimal music, rock and improvised
jazz. Ville Lempiäinen uses partly prepared video material and partly live video material
produced by cameras on the stage.

Critics on the CD ”Iris in Trance”

„Eight sound pictures are presented. The theme around them is seeing …and the impossibility
of seeing what is really essential in this world. Other senses are needed…. Kalima is grabbing
things that end up being illusions.“ Kai Müller, Tagesspiegel 27.01.09 (translation Kalima)

„A Fascinating look into Kalima’s think – thank Laboratory.“ Ralf Dombrowski; Stereoplay
24.02.09 (translation Kalima)

“Kalima’s performance was the highlight of the festival.” Didi Stahlschimidt, Ruhr Nachrichten
30.11.2009 (translation Kalima)
