International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music
Opening night’s NOCTURNE 1 at the MAC welcomes festival goers with an incredible program of artists who cross musical, visual and cultural boundaries in more ways than one.
Houndstooth label artist AÏSHA DEVI forefronts her Swiss-born Nepalese-Indian background and abstract techno leanings in metaphysical, intercultural bass music pulsing with meditative vocals -- accompanied by a live played video game created for her album by EMILE BENETT. London-based techno deconstructor LEE GAMBLE joins forces with animator, motion designer and graphic designer DAVE GASKARTH in a hallucinatory sonic creation called Foldings, that merges the future, the past and imaginary worlds. Montréal-based interactive cyberculture media collective SUSY.TECHNOLOGY adds to the evening’s experimental audiovisual art experience. Closing duties provided by legendary dub techno master MORITZ VON OSWALD.
Downstairs in the Beverley Webster Rolph Hall (BWR) it’s an exercise of rhythm machines with Mexico’s SIETE CATORCE and his Andean inflected grooves, local trippy sample techno by Sara Magnan as MAGNANIME, the masterful acid infused linearity of Uwe Schmidt as ATOM™, and the brother electro of Mathew and Nathan Jonson’s MIDNIGHT OPERATOR.
