Ontario artist Adam Young has been preparing the initial public outing of his project, Direwires, for almost a year now. MUTEK is thus particularly honoured to be able to welcome this world premiere. As a member of tech-house duo Tractile, Adam Young projects through Direwires his most simple and most direct impressions of the world around him-looking to natural or urban landscapes for inspiration as well as human voice recordings. From a form of music that could qualify as cinematographic, comes a soundtrack for everyday life. Young invites, with the help of natural or manufactured sounds, his listeners to an atmospheric soundscape tinted with precise impressionist touches. Direwires is an element of the Canadian ambient scene that we must certainly keep our eyes on in years to come.
