SHOWCASE OF CANADIAN AND QUÉBÉCOIS ARTISTS

In the previous Montreal edition, Mexico City was one of the distinguished cities brought in to celebrate the 375th anniversary of the host city’s foundation via the Inter_Connect program. As a result of this exchange, this year we have organized a group of experimental and avant-garde producers from Canada and Quebéc for the Edition 14 of MUTEK.MX. We are thrilled to strengthen the bonds between Montréal and Mexico. These artists standout from their live shows and performances during the festival, running November 22-26 in Mexico, as well as participating in the discursive Digi Lab program of panels, workshops and interviews.

Thanks to the support of Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des Arts et des lettres du Québec and the Ministère des Relations Internationales et de la Francophonie du Québec as part of the Diversités project, an unprecedented total of 14 artists will present 9 performances during the festival.

Julien Roy & Alexandre Burton (artificiel) pres. Three Pieces With Titles

Who: Alexandre Burton and Julien Roy, co-founders of Montréal-based digital creation studio, artificiel
Style: Immersive audiovisual installations and performances, electroacoustic compositions, custom-built software and hardware

A MUTEK commission developed with the support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Three Pieces With Titles relies on a new, souped-up, extreme real-time, audiovisual instrument that merges cameras, synthesizers, acoustic instruments, computers, and video projectors. The “three pieces” refer to three distinct movements: the image controls the sound (photographs trigger a camera plus a computer system linked to audio); the sound controls the image (an instrument triggers a camera plus computer system linked to photographs); and the sound is the image is the sound (colour turns into sound, acoustic vibration changes the colour and vice-versa).

Lucas Paris pres. AntiVolume IN/EXT

Who: Montréal-based musician and digital artist Lucas Paris, member of electroacoustic quartet Quadr and A/V outfit Betafeed
Style: Immersive synaesthetic environments, space-specific algorithmic light sculptures, ambient fantastical IDM, corroded rhythmic noise

This light and sound-sculpting A/V work performed on custom equipment, explores the constant motions and dynamics between timbre and colour, interior and exterior —reinterpreting ambient noise, techno tropes and rave-ish rhythms.

Magnanime

Who: Montréal musician and producer Sara Magnan
Style: Experimental tech house, IDM meets musique concrète, psychedelic dancefloor grooves

Magnanime creates a techno-house hybrid rife with experimental nuances, embracing mistakes of technology and recycling odd noises into her perpetually evolving, beat driven repertoire. Live, her forward thinking production process and enthusiasm for listener’s reactions shines, aware of her environment she manifests a dance music experience that is always an exchange with the audience.

Maotik & Max Cooper pres. Hyperform

Who: British producer and DJ Max Cooper and Montréal-based digital artist Mathieu Le Sourd
Style: 360º immersive audiovisual experience, amplified spatial forms linked to rhythmic excursions

Hyperform is an immersive A/V experience, exploring the role of spatial dimensionality to construct our reality, and its potential to create strange new realities as higher dimensional forms and spaces unravel around us. Hyperform sits at the edge between mathematics, science, visual and audio arts. The journey begins with the simplest spatial forms in both audio and visual format, and progresses towards a realm of beautiful immersive abstraction using real mathematical models of hyperdimensional forms, which are believed to exist beyond our normal perceptual capacity.

Woulg & Push 1 stop pres. Interpolate

Who: Montréal-based composer and new media artist Greg Debicki aka Woulg and motion design, 3D and audio reactive visuals creator Cadie Desbiens aka Push 1 stop.
Style: Emotive glitch music combined with grunge dissonance and the complexity of IDM and jazz. Visual and elegant narrative constructions, both precise and complex.

Interpolate uses live coding and generative processes to explore the relationship between audio and visual. This audio reactive performance is divided in four acts, image and sound meet, take turns in controlling each other and end up working in symbiosis. The stark, minimal, generative 3D geometry and particle systems take the audience through the music, conveying the physicality of the sound while mapping out the emotional landscape of the melodies. To interpolate means to determine an intermediate value or term in a serie by calculating it from surrounding known values; on stage Push 1 stop and Woulg send data wirelessly to each other in order to be able to patch new interactions between audio and visuals in real time, and interpolate the missing data between sound and image.

Musique Nouvelle (aka Simon Chioini & Félix Gourd)

Who: Montréal-based composer and producer Simon Chioini, also known as SC, Chioini and DJ Voilà and Montréal-based 3D visual artist, VJ and scenographer known as Félix Félix Gourd Gourd
Style: Percussion-driven electroacoustic techno, experimental acousmatic compositions; 3D expérimentations, dreamlike worlds and abstract geometry

Bolstered by a community of harmoniously experimental artists in Montréal, Simon Chioini creates a hybrid of new music compositions and genre fusing underground club sounds – acoustic instrumental flourishes and synth waves layered in syncopated rhythms and unexpected distortions. After completing a degree at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, Félix Gourd changed his practice towards visual production. His versatility has lead him to work with many local musicians, as well as international pop stars Britney Spears and Selena Gomez, alongside his established collaboration with Simon Chioini.

Diagraf, Ewerx & Wiklow pres. Liquid Architecture

Who: Montreal based trio composed of Patrick Trudeau aka Diagraf mostly known as a digital visual artist, but also a VJ, DJ, composer, and filmmaker ; programmer, artist and designer Ehsan Rezaie aka Ewerx specialized in creating visual and interactive experiences using technology and code and composer and technologist and digital artist Michael Dean aka Wiklow.
Style:
Organic and textured structures of sound and images. Ephemeral constructions dissolving into one another.

Liquid Architecture approaches generative composition and performance methods in an immersive environment. Combining LIDAR data and creative modeling, real-world buildings and imaginary landscapes are displaced and reconstructed point-by-point in 3D.

Baya

Who: Montréal visual designer and DJ Jean-Sébastien Baillat (Studio Baillat.)
Style: Hi-tech, vivid geometric moving images and hyper-stylized surreal visions

Jean-Sebastien Baillat has been creating high-tech visuals, branding campaigns, printed materials, web based work, dome performances, light and laser design, installations and staging for more than 15 years. Always at the forefront of technological practices he has maintained a reputation for potent, glossy, elegant creations.

Tim Hecker
Who: Montréal-based electronic musician, sound artist and academic
Style: Emotionally resonant abstract electronic soundscapes, ambient glitch and drone, warm harmonic noise, acoustic gone digitally wild

After 20 years and eight solo albums, Tim Hecker’s mastery of deep “ambient noise” still escalates in intensity with every release and increasingly sensorial performance. From his captivating bleak soundscapes on Harmony in Ultraviolet to melodic explorations of acoustic instruments run through with digital dexterity on Virgins, Hecker resists languishing in any genre. His compositions veer from synthesized glitching static to sustained piano chords, from dissonance to orchestral harmony.

Here is the full program.

This project was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the ” Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie du Québec as part of the Diversités project.

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

THE ORB AT AMBIENCE

The trajectory of this year’s programs is to create a different narrative and provide an open highway to the most adventurous sides of electronic music and digital creativity. We joined forces with the British Embassy via their Innovation UKMX. This cooperative effort will let us witness consecrated acts as well as emerging talents from the British Isles. They will be present in a series of epic journeys where the best of ingenuity will be displayed by Squarepusher, The Orb, Emptyset, Dark Sky and Kelly Lee Owens.

To fully enjoy the best of British innovation, get your tickets here!

On this context, our frequent collaborator Ejival introduces the legendary duo The Orb.

“Back to the chill-out mood ambient world of The Orb”

Even with the passing of time, the music of The Orb still transcends and transmits intermittent waves from its lunar base throughout the multidimensional conscience and within their disruptive frame. From the beginning of the 90’s, they changed the perception of rave music and added a whole new different dimension to the dance floor. Dr. Alex Paterson, the main force behind The Orb, always knew that there were sound layers to draw and new lands to explore. With the support of a host of collaborators and floating within major and independent labels for more than 25 years, The Orb has a magnificent, vast musical legacy worthy of the most profound analytical appreciation.

From this musical cluster, not everything has aged well but some of its obsolescence seemed planned from its inception. It is not about a certain electronic music style—of soft rave sounds, underworld dub or acoustic pop landscapes—but of a aesthetic presence that reflects a pulsating state caused by psychedelic substances and the care for the nature’s own chaos.

The Orb’s latest reincarnation, Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann side to side, is maybe the best one which synthesizes the pure state of sensation and depth; its new era with the German label Kompakt has given them a freedom in which requests and demands are no longer important, a time where label bosses thought they would become in some sort of Chemical Brothers. There had always been rebellion within the liquid and abstract sphere, one capable of writing the most subtle odes.

Their latest Kompakt creation, called COW / Chill Out, World!, summarizes the dub and ambient essence of the project in much more complete format. It is the gentler and direct side of Fehlmann and Paterson, with hundreds of settings and contemplative situations; it is the best piece of advice the world could get.

All of these considerations are the perfect introduction for their Ambience show at MUTEK.MX on Thursday, November 23. It is a truly special occasion where the planets, stars and dimensions have aligned for this special moment: aliens and humans, remain pending because The Orb are about to take off.

FÁBRICA

FÁBRICA

For our Edition 14, our already classic Nocturne program changes place to a historic and completely renewed steel factory. This space, which is reminiscent of the electronic culture of the eighties and nineties in different parts of the globe, recaptures that essence of having an unforgettable night; the artistic installations will definitly give the audience a full immersive experience. The factory has over 18,000 square meters, with three stages and all the necessary logistic and transportation services to live a memorable journey.

We devised and later found a unique venue adjusted to the safety and comfort of everyone.

NANO MUTEK 04

The first event of 2017 will have Lotic, Jlin and Wasted Fates as guests

With only days before MUTEK Montréal begins, here in Mexico we decided to celebrate big time with a unique and one-of-a-kind event: the confirmed artists for our series of exclusive NANO events are Jlin, Lotic and Wasted Fates. In our insatiable quest for new experiences for our audience, MUTEK brings together three artist which mix diversity and the unusual. In this second year of NANO events, and in the context the Edition 18 of our Canadian forefathers, this is the very first time these three will share the same space, while each one will offer something unique to give us a memorable night of unstoppable dancing.

LOTIC (US) is a Berlin-based American producer, who will have his first show on MUTEK Montréal and his second in Mexico. Member of the Janus Collective, he promises to captivate with his uncommon techno full of eroticism.

JLIN (US), the American producer Jerrylinn Patton, pleased us in her last year’s presentation in MUTEK.MX at the Foto Museo de Cuatro Caminos. In May she released her second LP called Black Origami and with her electrifying footwork she will surely take us to discover new sound pathways.

WASTED FATES (MX), aka Octavio Kh, is a Monterrey producer and a self-taught multimedia artist. He is member of the N.A.A.F.I. collective and Extasis Records; he has been in Mexico’s most important electronic music festivals with his high intensity club music.

Get your tickets here and set the date for Thursday, August 17 at Foro Normandie (López 15, Col. Centro).

Early Bird: $350 (MXN)
Box Office: $400 (MXN)
