Society for Arts and Technology [SAT]
A soirée dedicated to the first three cities to join UNESCO's Creative Cities Network in the "design" category: Berlin, Buenos Aires, and Montreal:
These are three cities where creators of all disciplines converge. Three global hotbeds between which many creative types often travel, carrying with them ideas, images, and sounds. Three cities that are also well-known for their strong electronic-music scenes.
DESIGNER_MIX presents a hybrid program that evokes the spirit of each of these cities, while connecting the dots between the creators who live and work in them. For this evening dedicated to designers, MUTEK and the SAT join Ville de Montréal's Bureau du design to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the city’s designation as a UNESCO City of Design.
Argentinean audio-visual artist Sol del Rio gets the ball rolling with a nuanced presentation. Next, Canadian dub-techno producer Deadbeat and world-renowned German video-artist Lillevan arrive for the world premiere of their new audio-visual collaboration. Pole returns to Montreal for his first MUTEK appearance in six years. The soirée culminates with the digital cumbia of Chancha Via Circuito.
