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
Berlin Community Radioannounces a call for artists for its new BCR Incubator programme, open to applications until April 25.
Aiming to “support Berlin-based emerging electronic music talents with a special focus on underrepresentedd and marginalised voices”, the programme will include a month-long BCR radio residency, music release, live performance, and Ableton Live 9 license and training, as well as studio time and an PR support.
The jury will include BCR-founders Anastazja Moser and Sarah Miles, as well as Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura of London’s NTS Radio, Soraya Bouwier of Truants blog, Frankie Hutchinson of Discwoman, and producer and BCR presenter rRoxymore.
Also featuring are Joey Hansom, Dj Alternegro and Cut Loose at the event that also falls also happens to fall on a stoner holiday, 420. No points for guessing which tradition the night identifies with more.

Evidently Rroxymore (aka Hermione Frank) doesn’t only let her cat crawl over her keyboard when she’s doing things like naming her tracks but she’s also adept at creating some delightfully frenetic tunes in the mean time. Hence, her wonderfully unpronouncable ‘FltNordf’ and our equal inability to describe the compulsive jive of its warbling synthetic tunes.
The track comes in advance of her four track EP Precarious/Precious, released on Planningtorock‘s label Human Level, August 19. **
