LE PLACARD

Artists

Just for Laughs Museum

Initiated in 1999 by Parisian organization BÜRO, LE PLACARD is a unique concept for a nomadic, international festival: it is based around the presentation of live musical performances to a public outfitted with headphones, along with the simultaneous transmission of the concerts over the Internet.

PLACARD//MUTEK 2005 is the initiative of Eric Mattson, commissioner of this first collaboration between LE PLACARD and MUTEK. The event-laboratory welcomes over a period of three days over sixty performances of original and untamed electronic music. The selected artists come from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, as well as several other countries—all of whom will be taking advantage of this exclusive platform to diffuse an eclectic assortment of original, unedited, and untamed electronic music.

A festival within a Festival, PLACARD//MUTEK 2005 also serves as an outlet for meetings and exchanges—a forum for impromptu collaborations and unexpected demonstrations.

The Yokomono project from duo Staalplaat Soundsystem debuts the festival in its performance format, and then follows with its installation mode-assuring a playfully animated break during the interludes which dot the program.

The calendar of performances will be published on www.leplacard.org, www.mutek.ca, and www.bandeapart.fm. The BANDEAPART.FM/Radio-Canada website will also present a blog where internet-users can interact more directly to share their impressions on the performances. PLACARD//MUTEK 2005 inaugurates the 2005 season for LE PLACARD, which will unfurl over three months in different venues.
