Report from Piksel [X]


Inntrykksrapport fra Piksel [X] festivalen Bergen 22. – 25. November 2012  Piksel er 10 år gammel! Festivalen har undertittelen Kernel Panic! og er en festival for de spesielt interesserte der elektronikk, eksperimentering og forherligelse av feil står sentralt. De er statsstøtta underdogs som står sammen og stemningen er sjeldent inkluderende og utforskende. Artistene, arrangørene, publikum og festivalens innhold satte i gang mange tanker hos meg. Programmet løper parallelt på flere steder i Bergen by: Workshops på dagen i BEKs lokaler og på Tapetmessen mens det ble holdt foredrag og presentasjoner på Lydgalleriet.
