The 18th Edition of MUTEK is on at various locations across Montreal, running August 22 to 27.
Known as Canada’s “preeminent hub of electronic music and digital creativity” — with festivals also taking place in London, Mexico City, Barcelona and Berlin — the five-day event brings together music, art and technology, dedicated to “discovery, revelation and community.”
-Panel discussion ‘Berlin Imaginaries,’ moderated by Taïca Replansky of CTM Festival with Hans Reuschl (Africaine 808), Chris Vargas (Pelada), Hermione Frank (rRoxymore) and Mike Shannon at Monument-National, Aug 26
Curated by Studio resident Estela Oliva, the event will look at the relationship between London and Berlin nightlife and is part of a larger series that explores “the state of London’s nightlife and its influence in pushing the boundaries of culture.”
The Lithuanian-born, Berlin-based producer and artist has been dabbling in ASMR and experimental sounds (“spoken samples and raps,” as he described it, “as well as buried breaths and gasps”), releasing first his image mix and later the imageless Video one, citing the privilege of “the supremacy of pure artistic feeling” over its visual depiction.
Biberkopf has changed his tune for the upcoming NTS event, joining London-based DJ and composer Beatrice Dillonfor a live AV collaboration, and welcoming visual components by photographer Anne Tetzlaff and artist Jack Sachs , all to be followed by a DJ set from Chloe Frieda (Alien Jams).
