Unusual music from the Baltics and North, shining a light on the most adventurous experimentalists of the region. With performers from Estonia, Finland, Russia, Sweden, Latvia, Denmark, Argentina and Scotland.
Roughly translated the title of the festival means 'music coming from behind the edge'. Occurring over three days there are some 20 plus performances of experimental/unusual music and some performance art, to be had in the space of what was once a Steel Mill by the seaside, named KATEL in Tallinn, Estonia.
Crudely and abstractly stated the first day has an anthropological slant, with elements of pop culture.
The second day becomes somewhat misanthropic, noisy and adventurous.
The third day is given to performance art, with amusicality and pure musicality, placed alongside one another.
In this festival the refined and polished, co-exist with the raw and uncooked. Fame is no virtue, the theme and method is all important. There are the seasoned and record label signed professionals of 'FONAL' and 'NOT NOT FUN', as well as other cult label signees from 'Posh Isolation' and 'Release The Bats Records'. Alongside these performers are the unsigned, but equally important. The sonic territory is broad, going beyond eclectic. The road of this festival goes down that which is less trodden and traversed, with qualities that are more interesting and fulfilling for doing so.

Instruments: modified electronics, electric guitar, sampler keyboard, tapes, casio, percussion.
Invoking weird pop hymns that are equal parts mystic futurism, ultra-slow techno, and surrealistic nostalgia, Sand Circles is music for the ocean floor, rather than the dance floor. Of 'NOT NOT FUN' Records
