A/Visions programming brings together the avant-garde and new passages in audiovisual experience at the international level: performances take us to universes individual to each guest artist through risky new formats, creative technology, multidisciplinary experimentation, and a disruption of current trends in aesthetic experience. A/Visions unites audiovisual pioneers, emerging artists, and commissioned projects in a unique curatorship to introduce intense sensory experiences that make audiences feel other dimensions and which show what creativity is capable of achieving through technology.
The A/Visions 2 program presents performances to mark a “before and after” for the festival, the city, and all the participants. Image, sound, and environment are each manipulated to create a sublime synesthesia and even a sensory trance. Wolfgang Voigt moves audiences to the density of abstract forests in GAS using audio loops. Line Katcho shakes imaginations with a new work; Immortelle. And a collaboration by Kazuya Nagaya and Florence To promises a transformative ritual, both analog and digital.
The performance Ambr begins with 445 rins (traditional Japanese bowl-shaped instruments) in a circular arrangement on the floor, to present an intense, elegant reverberation, with electronic processes guided by composer Kazuya Nagaya. For the first time, and as a premiere for MUTEK.MX, the performance will feature lighting and visuals by the artist Florence To, to delve still further into the Buddhist rituals and altars that inspired the work.

There’s no place on Earth like the Anahuacalli Museum. From its conception to its current role within the cultural life of Mexico City, the Anahuacalli preserves its own unique mysticism and energy. Built between 1942 and 1964 from the volcanic stone left by the eruption of the Xitle volcano, its architecture was inspired by the teocalli pyramid. Today the museum is organically integrated with the Pedregal landscape and yet it combines pre-Columbian symbolism, and avant-garde expression with the creative legacy of painter, Diego Rivera. Surrounded by reflective pools, ancient cacti, volcanic rock, and medicinal plants, the museum has been the scene of multiple emblematic moments in the culture of Mexico City. Among these have been concerts by Patti Smith and Moonchild (Zorn, Patton, Medeski, Baron & Dunn) and today, the XV year history of MUTEK.MX, with live performances by Wolfgang Voigt, Line Katcho and Kazuya Nagaya & Florence To.
Perhaps the perfect location for A/Visions 3, the Anahuacalli offers highly contemplative experiences for which environment is everything. The imposing character of the museum is sure to complement the experience of Ambr, a performance inspired by Buddhist ritual by Kazuya Nagaya & Florence To, and may induce participants into some deeper level of concentration during hypnotic performances by Wolfgang Voigt as GAS and Immortelle by Line Katcho.
