Biography

Phantom is the fruit of love of two artists, music lovers, geeks, misfits and treadmill rebels, who funnel their existence in the time-space-continuum into something of a new media spiced black magic. 
It all started in a cave underground and outside of Helsinki, in the fortress island 18th century bastion, that, some say, inhabits some deeply disturbed Russian ghosts. The ghosts have nothing to do with this story. Or the Russians. Nevertheless. 
After drinking way too much coffee and playing with their musical toys together, the slightly jazz, glitch and acid influenced pair decided to join forces. They merged into creating sounds to summon the stories of the dead and the unheard into a somewhat haunting mixture of alternative pop, nu-trip hop and electronica. 
To beef up the out-of-this-world experience, the band built in their laboratories some pretty rad multi-dimensional instruments to visualize and rapturize their knob, synth & laptop performance. The UFO (Ultrasonic Frequency Oscillator) was born, with which you play by flailing your hands above the flying saucer -looking midi-controller. And to spice it up even more, Z Vector, was created (essentially to the Scars -video, but later on to the live set) - real time visual projection software using Kinect cameras and audio data.

Their biggest dream is to change the world and have superpowers.
