Against The Clock Lab is where FACT's popular Against The Clock series comes to life on stage. A selection of artists from MUTEK Montréal's lineup will produce a track in just 10 minutes in front of a live audience while the entire event is simultaneously streamed online. Each performance will be followed by a short question and answer session, highlighting valuable music production tips and tricks.
Michael Dean, aka Wiklow, is a sound artist and academic who applies his theory to "psychoacoustic techno" that sits somewhere between Alva Noto's pristine rhythmic experiments and Burial's dusty 'ardkore soundscapes. A keen collaborator, Dean has worked with a host of local artists, including acclaimed 3D designer Push 1 stop, who he is set to perform alongside at this year's festival.
anabasine is American-born Danji Buck-Moore, a Montréal-based engineer, DJ and producer who's been promoting, spinning and beatmaking since 2011. He's the founder of local rave collective (and soon-to-be label) Lagom and is responsible for an ambitious long-running drone-focused series of warehouse events called Sleepover Drone Night. Moore's music pulls influence from across the map, overlying heaving drones over unpredictable club rhythms.
This event takes place in English.
