MUTEK MX Recommends – October 1 – 6

MUTEK MX Recommends – October 1-6

 

John Talabot’s New Label, Ten Years of Dub with Deadbeat and a surprise in collaboration with Sónar Mexico.

 

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

 

This is what’s happening between October 1-6 on the road to MUTEK MX Edition 16:

 

>  John Talabot and Axel Boman Start a New Label

The long-awaited return of John Talabot in 2019 has been filled with long dj sets behind the decks, including a couple of all-nighters (here, you can listen to his live session at Moog en Barcelona) and his mixtape for Dekmantel 2019, as existing proof of his current sound. But this has also been a year for new music: this summer we had the release of “Immediate crash alert” and this week, through Instagram, John announced the debut of The Night Land, his new label along Axel Boman, and the release of “Discodrums”, a new single by Talaboman, a track filled with hypnotic groove and cosmic sounds that you can listen to now:

>  Enjoy Deadbeat’s Deepest Dub Sounds in this New Compilation

The prolific Scott Monteith, who is focused on training new digital artists and software development, just released a very special compilation on BLKRTZ, the label that has released all his productions and collaborations as Deadbeat. The Echocord Sessions 2019-2019, published at the end of this summer, puts together eleven tracks released by the iconic Echocord label throughout the last decade, transforming in a radiography of time and showing us the full plasticity that Deadbeat is capable of achieving, inspired by Dub from ‘traditional’ moments, such as “Vampire Dub”, to the acid frenzy of “For Whom The Bell Tolls”.

Echocord operates in Copenhagen since 2002 with Kompakt as their distributor, focused on dub and its most experimental variations, being their signature sound. Their catalogue preserves in physical formant the deepest Dub sounds of artists such as Vladislav Delay, Mikkel Metal and Fluxion.

>  Watch the new Boiler Room by Deena Abdelwahed

Deena Abdelwahed returned to Tunis, her place of birth, in an intense journey that included sets by Crossend, Da Che and Dasha Redkina, among many other Tunisian talents, which you need to follow up close. Deena’s set for the first Boiler Room in this city is a powerful combination of representative sounds from the Middle East along with some other Leftfield Club gems, a perfect introduction before her performance at Edition 16, in which she will interpret the full live version of her magnificent album Khonnar.

>  New remix by Sebastian Mullaert to John Metcalfe

John Metcalfe is one of the low-key cutting-edge cult figures from the past century. He’s the co-founder of The Durutti Column, contributing to the release of the sub-label Factory Classical, and his connection to the Manchester scene has led him to making arrangements for artists like Peter Gabriel, Pretenders and Graham Coxon, by playing the viola, his main instrument, in albums by artists like Max Richter, Goldfrapp, Blur and even Coldplay. What’s more, he’s part of the credits of the iconic album Hex by Bark Psychosis. In between all of this, Metcalfe has his own career as a composer and he’s about to release a new anthology with remixes, commissioned by five electronic music artists, including our dear Sebastian Mullaert. His remix to “So Clear” has been debuted via Beatburger and you can listen to it here. Along with the premiere of this remix, Sabastian has announced the release of his new record, A Place Called •  Inkost (Kontra Music, 2019) for November 4th, and the first single is out now:

Sebastian Mullaert will come to Edition 16 with Circle of Live, a six-hour long set, along Dorisburg, Frank Wiedermann (Âme Live) and Mathew Jonson.  Get your ticket here.

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

For more than a week the CCD will become the meeting point between experts and curious alike, artists and makers interested in the alignment of immersive pieces, clinics, conferences, workshops and even computerized gastronomy sessions. See you there!

This fall Kelly comes back to the United States with a few handpicked performances of Grand Piano A/V, including Edition 16 of MUTEK MX this November.

MUTEK MX Recommends – July 23 – 29

MUTEK MX Recommends – July 23 – 29

Mini-documentaries, interviews and our takeover at Aire Libre FM

In MUTEK MX Recommends, you will find all the news, activities and pieces related to the artistic community that makes this festival one of the most exciting experiences of each year.

This is what’s happening July 23 to 29, on the road to MUTEK MX Edition 16:

 

Our takeover at Aire Libre FM: Listen to a playlist with commentary by Damian Romero, the director of MUTEK MX

 

Artist by artist, Damian Romero (the artistic director of MUTEK MX), will present a detailed walkthrough of all the sounds and immersive stimuli that are waiting for us this November with Edition 16. For two hours, you will get in-depth information from each and every one of the performances that will come to the festival this year while enjoying a carefully curated selection of tracks.  

MUTEK MX Edition 16 x Resident Advisor: See the mini-documentary about Circle Of Live 

From the serenity of his studio in the middle of the woods, producer Sebastian Mullaert talks about the ideas that inspired him to gather a group of producers under the name of Circle Of Live (COL), an initiative that seeks to transform the dancefloor experience from a fresh perspective, giving priority to improvisations and free jamming structure in which all participants are able to enter and leave the stage according to the night’s mood, conducting unique music and dancing sessions. While we find out how COL works live and how the perspective of all the people involved has shifted, Sebastian will invite us to be mindful at the club: Circle of Live is a collective space, created to keep us present and open to the surprises that each moment will bring, connected by listening and dancing.

Interview with Bendik Giske: restrictions to reach freedom. 

One of the most fascinating artists that the European avant-garde has given us is, undoubtedly, Bendik Giske. This conversation with Tight magazine is an interesting recount of his life, from his atypical childhood to his decision to leave electronic instruments behind in order to make music using only his saxophone and the circular breathing technique. We recommend reading the interview while you listen to his magnificent album Surrender: 

Unstoppable: Refik Anadol is nominated to the Lumen Prize 2019 and is the winner of the ‘Lorenzo il Magnifico’ International Award

 In addition to an intense season of unveiling pieces and immersive experiences in New York, Stockholm and Turkey, as well as participating in several technology and creativity festivals in Europe, the artist Refik Anadol has received very important nods from the industry: one award and one nomination. Just a few days ago, he received the Lorenzo Il Magnifico Lifetime Achievement Award, whereby UCLA recognized his trajectory as one of its most outstanding alumnus, and he has also been included in the list of nominees for the Lumen Prize 2019 in the category of “Moving Image”. The Lumen Prize For Art & Technology was established in 2012 with the purpose of acknowledging and boosting the best art made with technology all around the world. The news confirms that Melting Memories, the installation that he will present in Edition 16, is an experience you simply can’t miss.

PROGRAM | MUTEK Recommends
We explore Mexico City through sound and digital arts

 

Analogue summer: visit two locations from Edition 15

 

Throughout the rest of the summer, one of our favorite locations, the Tamayo Museum, will receive those seeking cutting-edge experiences to show their contemporary art collection, as well as current exhibitions, with guided visits, workshops and special visits. And if you want to disconnect from the city without leaving, the gardens of the Tamayo museum are at their greenest this time of year: the perfect shelter. If you visited the museum for the first time during the A/Visions 2 event from last year, you will be amazed by visiting it again during the day to discover all its exhibition halls. We can only tell you that the Diego Rivera collection and the architectural design are breathtaking. Here is a sneak peek:
