MUTEK – The international electronic music and digital creativity festival is now presenting its 24th edition, focused squarely on discovery and innovation.

Six days and nights of discoveries and immersive audio-visual experiences

Festivalgoers will have the opportunity to enjoy nearly 80 live performances presented at five iconic venues in the Quartier des spectacles: Les 7 doigts de la main, MTelus, Société des arts technologiques [SAT], Théâtre Maisonneuve at Place des Arts, and the Tranquille Esplanade, which once again hosts the free outdoor stage.

Of the scheduled artists, some 50 will be appearing for the first time at MUTEK Montréal. Unlike those first-timers, are three major Canadian figures who have made their mark internationally: Deadbeat, who will returning with his new project, Ark Welders Guild; Lowfish, who performed at the festival’s third edition in 2002; and Tim Hecker, who will be joining forces this time with the renowned Swedish visual artist Vincent de Belleval.

Some of the international acts who have particularly distinguished themselves at Europe’s most renowned festivals—or as part of the recent MUTEK network events in Mexico City and Tokyo—include Alessandro Cortini, a solo project by one of the members of Nine Inch Nails; the high-octane, irresistible collaboration between Eris Drew and Jeisson Drenth; Japanese sensation Hatis Noit’s bewitching marriage of lyricism and technology; iconic Chicago producer Jamal Moss, who will present pieces from his new album There Is No Acid In This House under the moniker of Hieroglyphic Being; and the founder of the eclectic, pioneering label Planet Mu, Mike Paradinas, who captivated the audience (and our artistic director) at Prague’s Lunchmeat festival as part of the μ-Ziq & ID:Mora project.

Meanwhile, many of the budding local scene’s most promising talents will take the stage, including the likes of prolific artist and activist Pascale Project, who will make an exclusive return to live performance at MUTEK; trio SPRLUA, who bring together musicians Samito, Haig V, and Peter Colantonio for a hybrid set mixing amapiano rhythms and filter house treatments; and Honeydrip, who is sure to win audiences over as part of her first live performance.
