Kontakt der Junglinge (DE)
True to tradition, MUTEK avails itself of the pristine Ex-Centris sound environment to present a group of artists whose work is all nuance and subtlety. The first program is a plunge into the serene and meditative depths of sonic exploration. It's an occasion to discover a new conceptual experience by artist CRISTOF MIGONE, followed by the first performance of GARY JOYNES (CLINKER) outside of his native Alberta. However, the highlight of this evening is THOMAS KÖNER's return to Montreal. KÖNER participated in the Ex-Centris opening gala in 1999 and has performed regularly at the FCMM Media Lounge. This time he's joined by his mentor and friend, ASMUS TIETCHENS. These two important figures from the chillier recesses of sonic experimentation will present the North American debut of their KONTAKT DER JÜNGLINGE project. A visceral journey not soon to be forgotten.
