Just read that Mika Vainio has died. This is sad. I have seen (or better: felt) Pan Sonic live sometime during the 90s opening during The Swans' last tour before they called it quits for a long time. Yet Pan Sonic were the ones that left me baffled. This noise, flickering light and the sheer rawness of the experience - never have I been in such a state of consciousness before. Been rediscovering them lately, especially as I do own a few CDs by Mika I have not yet heard, I now started slowly working my way through all that noise.
Definitely something to be enjoyed in well measured doses. Frequencies can induce trances and Pan Sonic created a whole calm chaos of that.
Thank you for those frequencies, Mika. The Pitch
