> Opening Concert: Concepción Huerta and Fernando Vigueras present Permanencia

The Mensajes Sonoros sessions are integrated into Inmersiva 2 with Permanencia, the Festival’s opening concert and a new experience of sound immersion and aural experimentation created by Concepción Huerta, who has just released the album Personal Territories through Static Discos, and Fernando Vigueras. In the context of Inmersiva 2, the inaugural concert will take the space of the CCD Memorial to fill its immense outdoor space with the sounds generated by machines and tapes from Concepción Huerta and the prepared guitar from Vigueras. A special occasion, as it has been a while since the Memorial has been used as a space for live sets. 

Thursday September 26th, 20:00 h. 

> EVE: Dance is an unplaceable place – Dance Performance & VRC

“Eve is the encounter between the virtual and the real, to awaken the sensations of displacement.” This dance piece, integrated by four movements (3 through VR technology and 1 live), seeks to generate a trip between dimensions through each choreography and detonate answers to questions such as ‘what causes the meeting between cultures?’ ‘How does the encounter between people and machines manifest?’ Or how does nature behave along with civilization?’ EVE: Dance is an unplaceable place will be presented in multiple sessions on the weekend of the festival. 

Saturday Sept. 28th and sunday Sept. 29th, 15:00 a 20:00 h. 

> Closing concert: CLON & NWRMNTC (UK) present Meta

Meta is an audiovisual performance, but also a live game and soundtrack simulation experience. From a first-person perspective, Meta catches the audience and adds them to the experience of the player who commands a trip between dystopian worlds created by CLON, artist in charge of generating the 5 “worlds” of the video game that is Meta, and NWRMNTC, artist who creates the music that, in real time, accompanies the player through his decisions. Meta is a collaborative project created between Iceland and London by Estela Oliva aka CLON and Ana Quiroga aka NWRMNTC. 

Domingo 29 de septiembre, 20:00 h.

Inmersiva 2 International. Other senses, other realities is an initiative from the Immersion Laboratory at the CCD. Free access.

MUTEK MX Recommends – August 6 – 11

MUTEK MX Recommends –  August 6 – 11

New remix by Deena Abdelwahed, Agora to Fennesz now on vinyl and a new interview with Kevin Martin of King Midas Sound

In MUTEK MX Recommends, you’ll find all the up-and-coming news, activities and pieces from the artistic community that makes our festival, one of the most exciting experiences of the year.

 

This is what will happen between August 6-11 on the road to MUTEK MX, Edition 16:

 

> Agora, the new album by Fennesz is now available on vinyl

 

The solo return from Fennesz after a long period of albums and live sets in collaboration with other explorers of sound and visuals, had captivated once again an audience that has followed him since the late nineties. “(Agora) works in small, fascinating ways from moment to moment but has a cumulative force that is unlike anything he’s done in years”, wrote Pitchfork, and Pop Matters recommends the album as a “reimagining space and time”. Agora has just been released on vinyl, and is now available in Mexico. You can get your copy here and, even better, get a guaranteed place for the live performance in Edition 16 here

> Listen to the new remix by Deena Abdelwahed of Wraetlic

 

A couple of weeks ago Deena Abdelwahed stunned the audience of festivals like Dekmantel with the powerful live version of her album Khonnar (a magnetic, yet dark journey into the life of a woman and queer artist in a Middle East country), but she also showed her impressive skills with her peculiar way of mixing and creating new versions of tracks for her DJ sets. The remix EP of Ad Absurdum, the newest album by the Scottish producer Alex Smoke under his Wraetlic moniker, has just been released in the midst of this intense summer tour, including the remix of “Idioms” by Deena. Listen to it now and don’t miss the live set by Deena in Edition 16, get your guaranteed access here.

> What lies ahead with King Midas Sound: Kevin Martin in conversation with Echoes and Dust

 

“ I want (Solitude) to be a very intense experience to reflect what happened. It should go from a whisper to an avalanche of sound and it should be very physical as well as very cerebral.“   

-Kevin Martin aka The Bug 

 

Having Kevin Martin on stage, either as The Bug – live or DJ Set – or together with Roger Robinson to perform as King Midas Sound (KMS), is an absolute and tortuous pleasure. Only this summer, along with a few select shows with KMS, he has become a special guest to open shows of the stoner-doom-rock band OM and the noise act The Body, in addition to the presentation of a special set in collaboration with Moor Mother at Supersonic Festival. His diverse and extensive career as a producer and his careful and detailed approach to the live audio experience (The Bug may hypnotize you with his subtle ambient explorations or blast through any sound system like a madman), along with his sensitivity in collaborating with other art disciplines, have made Kevin Martin a fascinating and essential figure in the contemporary music scene. Thus, Echoes and Dust magazine went on the mission of having an in-depth conversation with The Bug, publishing a two-part interview, which you may read here (Part I and Part II) and here, you may get your tickets to indulge in the live session with King Midas Sound at Mutek Edition 16

> Two weeks away from the 20th Anniversary of MUTEK Montreal 

Soon MUTEK will take over many iconic places of Montreal: ten locations will host close to 90 live acts along with immersive experiences throughout one whole week. If you are still looking for an international plan this summer, you may take advantage of the special price for the MUTEK Mexico community, using the code MUTEKxMX while purchasing your tickets here. You may also enjoy a taste of what’s coming to our Edition 16 with the live performances by Deena Abdelwahed and Overmono, among many others. One of the most beautiful, diverse and creative cities in North America is waiting for you, see you there.
