> Pedro Maia: Negative Space, work in progress 

The iconic Berlin Atonal festival presents Negative Space by Pedro Maia as a preview of his new performance in an installation format. In this piece, presented as a work in progress, Pedro projects 16mm films on three synchronized cubic objects filled with smoke, in a search “to deconstruct the negative space and give the viewer complete freedom to gaze into the film manipulations. The viewer is submerged into the image, becoming the subject of that image and of the composition”. To transform Negative Space into an installation, Pedro Maia collaborated with designer Marcel Weber aka MFO, who has also collaborated with Aïsha Devi in the scenographic design of some of her live A/V performances. This November, Pedro Maia will complement Vessel’s performance with live cinema.

> North American premiere of Organismos Oníricos by mexican duo Nueve Vidas & Rimiyoho

This A/V performance created by the Mexican duo also known as Nueve Vidas & Rimiyoho, made up of producer Luis Trasto and audiovisual artist Fernando Sica, presents, through modular synthesizers and digital illustrations created in real time, a multimedia narrative full of mysticism and nature. Nueve Vidas & Rimiyoho premiered Organismos Oníricos in North America as part of the Motion 1 program, sharing the stage with Sinjin Hawke & Zora Jones and Gaika, among other international guests:

Mixset Nocturno 1 y Festival Cervantino

Este fin de semana inician las actividades de MUTEK_MX 2011, con la participación de Ewan Pearson, Brandt Brauer Frick, Frivolous y Rubinskee durante el Nocturno 1 en la Ciudad De México el 21 de Octubre y durante el Festival Internacional Cervantino el 22 de Octubre . Para calentar motores, una selecta muestra de la música que escucharás ahí, en un minimix realizado por ejival. El mixset contiene la esencia de la música de este fin de semana, que va desde lo pop, jazzy, pasando por lo experimental y culminando en una intensidad altamente bailable.

Brandt Brauer Frick, los no originales del jazz house humano

Brandt Brauer Frick fueron una de las sorpresas del MUTEK en Montreal durante el 2010, cerrando el festival con un set sorpresivamente elegante y dinámico, lleno de influencias de house, jazz y tecno minimal. Y en este sentido, MUTEK había cumplido la promesa de traer la atención a talentos emergentes como este impresionante trío Alemán.

Meses después Brandt Brauer Frick editarían su disco debut en el influyente sello !k7, develando también un impresionante video para el tema Bop, un majestuoso ejercicio visual que acompañaba perfectamente la estética del grupo, quienes se mostraban como unos Kraftwerk apastelados con jazz y house, creando la ilusión de un ensamble virtual de ellos mismos, una idea de como se veían tocando su música en el futuro. La idea del ensamble se vería realizada a finales del 2010, convirtiéndose Brandt Brauer Frick verdaderamente en una moderna agrupación de jazz y electrónica, la perfecta fusión entre máquinas y humanos. Después trabajarían con Emika, la productora de dubstep del Reino Unido, en sus presentaciones en vivo.

A pesar del concepto que maneja el trío y su relativo éxito en poco tiempo, a Brandt Brauer Frick les viene guango el concepto de ser “originales”. Frick, el miembro del trío que regularmente habla por ellos, recientemente dijo que “muchos artistas (especialmente la crítica) están obsesionados con la originalidad y la individualidad, que en muchos casos esto es simplemente ridículo”. Originales o no, será un placer verlos en México dentro del marco de SONY MUTEK_MX 2011.
