FURUKAWA was created in the summer of 1998 by a team of guys who had strong ties of friendship for several year. The trigger for that action was the will to listen to industrial music with professional audio equipment. Until this turning point here in Greece no place or team existed so that you can listen to this interesting and peculiar kind of music in a way that the nature of this music demands.
The first action took place
at 25.07.98 under a lot of stress and several problems with the authorities ,in an
open ground area. But the outcome was worth it. Although the approach was highly
unprofessional the people who took part in this effort enjoyed it very much. The
genders used was EBM, ELECTRO, PSYCHEDELIC with hints of noise. After that the
purchase of a mixing console took place and the team started experimenting. A
year passed with lots of vinyl and cd orders from abroad, because the access in
Greece at that period was mainly EBM style.
After a year(10.07.99) the
second action took place. Of course we are talking about open public happening
(posters ,flyers etc.) although the team had several parties organized for very
few people .In this second act the approach was very different. A computer was
used for live effects and loops ,four turntables and four cd player. The night
till the bright light morning sun was highly promising and unforgettable for the
people who attended it. The experiment using so many sources left a great
promise for the future. To this helped the 6KW audio system.
The third party took place at
16.10.99 in a garage under heavy rain. The sound !!!!!!! was very terrorizing
and the place melted perfectly with the frequencies. It was a fact that building
around the area nearly shacked to the rhythm .The atmosphere was great and
heavily covered by the noise.
The fourth action (04.12.99)
took place in a hall .For the first time the program had a compound form that
made a 7.30 hours DJ set. Also there was a bass player and live barrel
percussion during the set.
After three months at 25.03.00
and in the same place took part the fifth action which was the most well
organized of all although without the great help and inspiration of Sold
Resonance .The music had a harsher approach …
