Avant_MUTEK New York
MUTEK lands in NYC on April 29th to present AVANT_MUTEK – an intimate little evening at APT as a prelude to the fourth edition of its festival. MUTEK is visiting NYC to share some of the artists who have contributed to the festival’s great success and grown up with us.
Akufen (Force Inc., Risquee Musique - Montreal)
Deadbeat (~scape - Montreal)
Crackhaus (Onitor, Force Inc. - Montreal)
DJ Casio (Other Music - NYC) - DJ
AKUFEN has been with MUTEK since the beginning and this will be his very first New York appearance. Montrealer by adoption, DEADBEAT first performed at MUTEK in 2000 and his profile has grown along with the festival’s. He’s been lavished with critical acclaim for his recent album on POLE’s ~scape. Newcomers CRACKHAUS (Deadbeat + Steve Beaupre) are set to present what could be taken for as Herbertian dancefloor nonsense. OTHER MUSIC’s own DJ CASIO will also be on hand.
MUTEK’s international reputation has been built on a number of factors, quality and integrity being foremost. While we could not import the entire “MUTEK experience” on this visit, we are proud to be able to present at least a micro sample of the sound and festive atmosphere of MUTEK to tease and tantalize New York’s ears.
AVANT_MUTEK is made possible thanks to the support of Other Music, Moet & Chandon, Flyer and Vice.
