Pastacas (EE)

Pastacas is the moniker of Estonian artist Ramo Teder who has released music under that name since early 2000s. “Pastakas” means “ball-point pen” in English, and Ramo likes to use this little instrument in his paintings and drawings. In 2001 he started to record music influenced by UK label’s Warp, and got a review in UK music magazine “Wire” where his 2004 electronic album “Tsaca Tsap” was described as “remarkably charming and creative”. By now Pastacas has moved on and developed his own unique blend of experimental folk-pop which he creates using with looper, different guitars, mandoline, flute, block flutes and vocals. Currently residing in Finland, he has toured several times in Europe and also Japan (incl with japanese alt.folk duo Tenniscoats) where his records have been released by Afterhours label. In 2013 Pastacas and Tenniscoats released a collaboration album “Yaki-Läki”. Pastacas has also written music for film and theater both in Estonia and Finland. At Schilling he will present his brand new material to be released soon on a long awaited new album.
