MUTEK.MX Is Back!

MUTEK.MX  2011

Holding down a steady stream of events in Mexico City since 2003, MUTEK.MX has spent so much of the last decade introducing Mexico to a thrilling carousel of international electronic talent. More recently, MUTEK's collaboration with the prestigious Festival Internacional Cervantino (FIC) over the last three years has shaped a new context for the organization's presence in Mexico, resulting in a revitalization of MUTEK.MX, back this year in full form and ready to present one of its most ambitious and forward-thinking lineups in many years.  
  
Running October 21 - 29, 2011 in Mexico City, the festival features five nights of international artists, audiovisual performances, live band projects, daytime panels and workshops and more. MUTEK.MX is also pleased to welcome a brand-new partner, Sony, into its 2011 edition.

MUTEK RETURNS TO THE FESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL CERVANTINO

MUTEK will be landing in Mexico this month with our return to the 39th edition of the Festival Internacional Cervantino (FIC) for a series of events that run October 21 - 29, 2011 in Guanajuato. The largest multidisciplinary festival in Latin America, and one of the largest in the world, the FIC first invited MUTEK to program several events for its 2009 edition. Following the resounding success of these events, a collaborative agreement was signed with the FIC that  designates MUTEK as curator of their digital arts program over the next several years.
 
It is thus with pleasure that MUTEK proudly reveals its FIC program for 2011, as we further explore the incredible playground that is the city of Guanajuato, a UNESCO World Heritage site. MUTEK events have been set up in a more compact timeline this year, in order to allow Mexican and international MUTEKers the chance to see all that the MUTEK programming has to offer.
 
Events get under way Friday October 21, with  evening performances of ROBERT HENKE and CHRISTOPHER BAUDER unforgettable ATOM project. A matrix of 64 helium balloons programmed to sound and light, ATOM was premiered at MUTEK in Montreal for it's 10th anniversary in 2009, and remains one of the festival's all-time highlights.
 
On Saturday October 22, MUTEK's popular outdoor Piknic format returns once again to the Pastitos park, to showcase some more of the Montreal festival's discoveries over the last two years, including 2010 festival favourites BRANDT BRAUER FRICK [DE], Swedish trance-houseduo MINILOGUE, and Canadian FRIVOLOUS.
 
Closing off MUTEK's 2011 FIC program is a concert in Guanajuato's central square at the Alhondiga de Granaditas, featuring Canadians KID KOALA and GUILLAUME COUTU DUMONT & THE SIDE EFFECTS, on Saturday October 29.
