Chic Miniature (CA/AR)

One of the rising talents from the MUTEK_Rec stable! Chic Miniature is the exciting duo of Guillaume Coutu-Dumont and Ernesto Ferreyra, two of this city's finest up-and-coming micro-house producers. Between them, this pair has already accumulated a wide and varied catalogue of first-rate house music. Chic Miniatue, has released their work via Raummusik and Musique Risquée.

Guillaume Coutu-Dumont is an electronic artist born in Montreal and established in Berlin, Germany. He is recognized for his varied collaborations with musicians such as Julien Roy, David Fafard and Vincent Lemieux, as part of Mutek, and as he is one of the artists with whom the festival was launched.

Coutu-Dumont, who comes with an academic background in percussion, has been experimenting with micro-house under numerous guises since 2003. He's recorded one album and several singles with fellow Montrealer Julien Roy, as the dark and surreal duo Egg. Coutu-Dumont also works alongside David Fafard (Mutek_rec, Morris Audio, and of audio-visual troupe Nanalog) in Luci, producing more playful, party-minded tracks. Finally, Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts gives this prolific producer the chance to indulge his micro-funk fantasies.

The major part of Coutu-Dumont’s collaborative work was developed jointly with Mutek. Other collaborations include Vincent Lemieux (Mutek_rec), and also the artistic collective Racam. Recently Coutu-Dumont was part of Per Eckbo Orchestra, a project with Federico Molinari, that took place in Oslo.

Argentina-native Ernesto Ferreyra, on the other hand, has opted to take the DJ's path to the studio. He landed really early in the world of electronic music, after having worked as a radio host in Cordoba, his hometown in Argentina. At the age of 14, he was already swinging in underage clubs. Later, with the firm intention to know the world, he moved out to turbulent Mexico City, where he lived for 3 years and made his producing debut.

He then went to Montreal, seduced by the vibrating and creative culture of that place where Canadian electronic music was born. There, his know-how was propelled thanks to the artists of Mutek Festival, and particularly Guillaum Coutu-Dumont, with whom he plays and produces with the name Chic Miniature.

After several absent years, Chic Miniature comes back to the MUTEK stage, now at microMUTEK.CO in Bogotá.
