> 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.

Refik Anadol’s most ambitious piece to date has debuted in New York

 
Easily put, Machine Hallucination is an immersive experience that imagines possible futures in the fields of architecture and cinematography. In order to make this happen, a great amount of data and 3D images on iconic sites of New York City has been intervened, reinterpreted and projected on a complex Artificial Intelligence System developed by Refik Anadol and his team of innovators. These projections takeover the new Artechouse warehouse in New York, which has been transformed into a space focused on the development and exhibition of immersive multimedia art. “A never-before-seen synesthetic reality experiment that challenges spatial perceptions” according to the review published by Surface Mag, one of the specialized media outlets present at the opening of Machine Hallucinations.

 


 

> Sebastian Mullaert in CDMX: Two amazing sets and one visit to the Anahuacalli Museum

 A couple of weeks ago, the producer Sebastian Mullaert visited Mexico City, after conquering the stage of one of the Nocturne events in the recent 20th Anniversary of MUTEK Montreal as part of the Circle of Live project. His latest visit to our city was nothing but intense: he started by taking over the booth at Aire Libre FM station, mixing tracks from his next solo release and takes from recent sets by Circle of Live (listen to it here) and reaching his most exciting point in a night filled with energy and excitement with a live set of three hours at Normandie, presented by Dynamic Waves. Sebastian‘s intense journey closed out with a very special visit to the Anahuacalli Museum, where we interviewed him, you can check the feature soon at local.mx. During this visit, Sebastian planted the seed for all the expectations of what is to come with the Circle Of Live performance during MUTEK MX in November:  a six-hour collective dancing session with a strong energy exchange, conducted by the musical intuition of six incredible Techno and House producers: Dorisburg, Mathew Jonson, Frank Wiedemann (Âme live) and Mullaert himself.

 

> Save the Date: Immersiva Festival is coming to the CCD

“Immersive is an international Summit that gathers experimental practices of the fields of arts and science, based on virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed realities and several practices related to immersion”.

> New augmented reality experience by Aïsha Devi

EXT, the annual event presented by the English platform  Simple Things, just recently announced a program with talks, performances, and the release of special projects for multimedia exploration and arts. One of the surprises was the confirmation of the world debut of I’m not always where my body is, a new immersive experience created by the amazing Aïsha Devi. Crack Magazine has mentioned that this will be “an unprecedented multi-user Augmented Reality experience where viewers can collectively experience a 3D performance through innovative augmented reality technology, developed with AR specialists Pussykrew and Zubr”. We’re anxiously awaiting the follow-up in this new phase of Aïsha Devi before her arrival at our Edition 16.

> Vessel debuts a sound piece inspired on Clarice Lispector 

Serge Gainsbourg aka Vessel will debut The Passion According to GH, a new sound piece inspired by the novel with the same name written by the prominent Brazilian author Clarice Lispector, which narrates a slow but tortuous descent into madness. Vessel composed The Passion According to GH during his residence at Somerset House Studios’ Rifle Range, an enormous historic estate (which could be considered a castle) built in 1547, which has a hidden studio that houses an artistic community in constant rotation. In this enigmatic and antique space and accompanied by Lispector’s novel, Vessel created one of his darkest and most intense pieces to date. After this premiere, he will resume his tour alongside the experimental filmmaker Pedro Maia, visiting Mexico City for our Edition 16.

Will any of them be added to our Edition 16? Remember that there are still many surprises to come.

Which is the role of culture translated into sensations of the skin?” These are the questions that will be answered with practical and reflexive activities, directed at the artistic community. The clinic started yesterday, but you will still be able to participate in this experience that will end this Friday.

Performance upon performance, Circle Of Live has become one of the most exciting and atypical projects that had ever emerged from the clubbing experience, thus amplifying the creative drive of live jams through constant change. The platform flows through specially located locations, crossovers with contemporary dance and, now, a series that gathers musicians coming from the classical music scene, bringing a whole new sound palette. In Concert will debut in Malmo, Sweden, with a live jam from the producers Sebastian Mullaert and Laurence Guy in collaboration with the cellist Gerda Holmquist, Elina Nygren playing the viola and three instrumentalists from the Subchamber Ensmble, under the creative direction of the composer Nathan Larson. “As usual we have no clue where the flow of improvisation will take us and there is only one way to find out.” Circle Of Live will soon announce new dates for In Concert, in the meantime guarantee your access and enjoy the six-hour improvised set that will perform at MUTEK MX Edition 16.

> Machine Hallucinations, the new high-tech trip by Refik Anadol

 

Refik Anadol continues with an intense season of debuts all around the world, and just when the Artechouse platform announced that he will bring his installation Infinite Space to their Miami branch, they also started preselling tickets for one of the most ambitious immersive experiences ever created by Anadol to date, which will be debuted on the opening of a new space that will be used exclusively for multimedia innovative exhibitions: Machine Hallucinations, will debut on September 6 at the new Artechouse location, located in Chelsea, New York.

With Machine Hallucinations, Artechouse will become the first cultural space to use laser technology for projection with a 150-megapixel resolution in 16K accompanied by a L’ISA sound system with 32 channels used in order to create immersive and hyper-real soundscapes. Refik Anadol bolsters these tools with his unique mixture of data interpretation, Artificial Intelligence, 3-D sculpting and transformation of architectural environments, making Machine Hallucinations a synesthetic reality experiment that projects and transforms images from iconic buildings and spaces in New York, revealing the hidden connections between the city’s past, present and future.

 

Anadol’s previous site-specific digital projections have been displayed at international cultural landmarks worldwide, but never before utilizing technology of this scale and caliber”, Artechouse stated.

> Watch an epic set from Batu in Dekmantel before his show at MUTEK MX

 

Batu is one of Dekmantel’s favorites, and for their 2019 edition, which happened just a couple of weeks ago, he played two sets, one to close the night on Saturday, the most important day at the festival, and a second one for Boiler Room on Sunday. On Saturday night, his distinctive mixing skills shined from 8 to 11 PM, gathering all the day’s energy, transforming into a dancing session that Resident Advisor considered among the top-five performances of Dekmantel 2019, as well as Crack Magazine, which simply highlighted that set as the festival’s “stand out moment” in their review. Although (at the moment) we can’t listen to the legendary three-hour set from Saturday by Batu, his performance at the Boiler Room on Sunday is now available.

It’s Dekmantel Boilerroom time… watch me close out the stage live here!

And as a reminder: Batu will return to Mexico City at the peak of this momentum, ready to smash the dance floor in our Edition 16, tickets here.

With a live analogue instrument and the energy of a dancer like Nikita, known in the contemporary dance circuit in Europe, due to her organic and timeless and heavily improvised dance style, Circle Of Live is faithful to their commitment of unrestricted creation and artistic freedom. In this session, electronic beats and jams were created by Johanna Knutsson, Leafar Legov, Sebastian Mullaert (COL founder) and Matt Karmil

MUTEK MX Recommends – July 16 to 21th

MUTEK MX Recommends – July 16 to 21th

Fresh releases, what to do in Mexico City, and relevant news from and for the MUTEK MX community.

MUTEK MX Recommends brings the latest news and activities from the artistic community that makes MUTEK MX’s festival one of the most exciting experiences of the year.

This is the road to MUTEK MX Edition 16 from July 15th to 20th: 

MUTEK Buenos Aires releases its First Wave of Confirmed Artists

A few days ago MUTEK Buenos Aires announced its First Wave of Artists for its Edition 3, to be held this September just after the 20th Anniversary of MUTEK Montreal and just before Mexico’s Edition 16.  These 20+ artists represent MUTEK at its core: the new South American avant-garde is represented with Ale Hop (PE), IMAABS (CL) and Joaquina Salgado (AR) along with internationally renowned cutting-edge artists such as Hiroaki Umeda (JP) and Push 1 Stop & Wiklow (CA) who will present their most recent multimedia performances. Find all about MUTEK Buenos Aires here.

On the road to MUTEK Montreal’s 20th Anniversary: ​​Nueve Vidas & Rimiyoho’s canadian premiere

One of the highlights of MUTEK MX Edition 15 definitely was Organismos oníricos, a performance by Nueve Vidas & Rimiyoho that will have its Canadian premiere in August, as part of the 20th Anniversary of MUTEK Montreal. Producer Luis Trasto aka Nueve Vidas specializes in analog modular synthesizer live performance (we have seen him behind huge Euroracks with duo Alias ​​616), while Fernando Sica aka Rimiyoho, illustrator and visual artist, mixes painting and graffiti  techniques with digital tools for live visuals. This hybrid between analogue and digital processes makes the essence of Organismos oníricos, an audiovisual ecosystem that aims to reconnect us with the sacred. Nueve Vidas & Rimiyoho will share the stage with Deena Abdelwahed, Overmono, 404.zero, Bendik Giske, Circle Of Live, Ryoichi Kurokawa and Tim Hecker & The Konoyo Ensemble, artists that will also be performing in México City this November as part of MUTEK MX Edition 16. 

 

Pedro Maia announces new A/V collaboration with Shapednoise for Berlin Atonal

In addition to a solid career that includes individual and collective exhibitions in places such as the Tokyo Contemporary Art Museum and Edinburgh’s International Film Festival, Pedro Maia has become one of the favorite video scenographers of festivals such as Unsound, Dekmantel and the extinct All Tomorrow’s Party. His abstract, emotional and vivid style is the result of combining analogue media such as film in 8 and 16 mm and live cinema with digital edition, and has become the perfect visual complement to the music of artists such as Robert Lippok, Shackleton, Tropic Of Cancer, Gala Drop and Fennesz. A few days ago, Pedro Maia announced the premiere of Aesthesis, a new A/V collaboration with Italian producer Shapednoise, which will be premiered at the end of August at Berlin Atonal festival. After this premiere and a summer mini-tour that includes presentations at Flow (Finland) and Visions (France) festivals, Vessel & Pedro Maia will arrive to Mexico City to present the Queen of Golden Dogs A/V performance for MUTEK MX Edition 16

 

 

Refik Anadol’s new digital sculpture reinterprets data obtained from the Black Sea

After premiering Latent History in Stockholm and being called “The Leonardo Da Vinci of the 21st century”  by the press, artist Refik Anadol returned to his home country, Turkey, to inaugurate a new piece. Black Sea is a digital sculpture that reinterprets the data collected by a high frequency radar that floated for a year over the most remote areas of the Black Sea coast; Through the use of AI and other digital media, Refik transformed the practice of ‘data visualization’ of the information collected on the radar into an aesthetic experience full of poetry and abstraction.
