MUTEK Mexico unleashes a second wave of artists for its 13th edition, taking place October 19 to 23 at unique locations around Mexico City. These latest names from both the international circuit and the rich and ascendant local and Latin American scene, reflect the festival’s dedication to showcasing a wide and eclectic range of contemporary electronic music and digital arts practices. Mixing unique live performances across genres of music, sound and visual arts with technology — including new forms of research and re-imaginings of interactive and interface-based works, along with architectural interventions and the emerging perspectives offered by virtual reality — the festival continues its curatorial mission to both cultivate and inspire its savvy and rapidly expanding audience.
The program continues to deepen its global offerings with the inclusion of exclusive performances from:
RICHIE HAWTIN (CA) / µ-ZIQ (UK) / SPACE DIMENSION CONTROLLER (UK) / RROSE (US) / JOHN TEJADA (US) / ACRONYM (SE) / MYRIAM BLEAU (QC) / MICHELA PELUSIO & GLENN VERVLIET (IT/BE) / MICROFEEL (ES)
Drawing on the significant talents in its own backyard and underlining its commitment to homegrown artistry, the festival is excited to welcome a slew of Mexican and Latin American artists to the fray:
AAAA (MX) / IMAABS (CL) / CYANÉ (MX) / SANFUENTES & MIJO (CL/MX) / GASPAR PERALTA (MX) / ALIAS616 (MX) / 失夢 (SHITSUYUME) (MX) / ME & MYSELF (MX) / DAMAJA RAINBOW (MX)
