Barcelona's MUTEK.ES Announces Daytime Digi_Section Program

With just two weeks to go to the 3rd edition of MicroMUTEK.ES – February 8th to 11th, 2012 in Barcelona – we take a peek at the festival’s daytime conference section, the Digi_Section.
 

Artist Q&As

Taking place Wednesday 8th to Friday 10th and entirely free of charge, the Digi_Section kicks off each festival weekday with an artist Q&A session at 5pm at the festival HQ, Bar 33/45. Each day pairs two artists who are performing later that night as part of a same showcase, thus giving a nice preview as to what to expect in the night-time programming.For those unable to physically attend, the Q&A sessions will be livestreamed through return partner Struments Radio.


Wednesday’s session begins with Canadian DJ Eddie C, regarded as one of the Slo Mo/ Edits/ Disco scene's heaviest hitters for his dozen+ singles and EPs released over the last 2 years. He is followed at 6pm by Dutch techno artist San Proper, a notorious figure in Amsterdam’s nightlife, who is driven by a fiery passion for music and an innate predisposition for eccentricity.
 

On Thursday and Friday, the Red Bull Music Academy teams with MUTEK.ES to present the latter portion of the Q&A series. On Thursday, Finnish techno legend Sasu Ripatti, known for his work as Luomo and Vladislav Delay among many other monikers, enters a discussion following Spain’s Guillamino, an artist whose diverse wanderings through electronica, hip-hop, jazz and dubstep have prompted Gilles Peterson to name him “someone to watch now”. While both artists perform later on that evening as part of the Nocturne 2, Ripatti will also be putting in a highly anticipated performance the night before during the A/Visions 1 showcase at the Sala Apolo.


The Q&A series closes on a high note, with a session with Falty DL, an artist who has been released on labels such as Planet Mu, Ramp, and Rush Hour, and one of dub techno’s greatest voices, Deadbeat.
 

These Q&A sessions give festivalgoers a taste of the kind of discussions that take place at the Red Bull Music Academy, as a preview to the upcoming RBMA 2012 sessions in New York.  RBMA representatives will be on hand at Bar 33/45 over all four days of the Micro_MUTEK.ES festival, as part of the launch of their call for submissions for the Red Bull Music Academy 2012. Information about the event, application forms, and more will be available on-site. All styles of music and diverse levels of expertise are welcome so make sure to check it out!
 

Workshops

MicroMUTEK.ES is proud to present its first-ever workshop, in collaboration with Ableton Live. Led by Live expert and respected producer Scott Monteith, aka Deadbeat, the workshop will cover the basics of live performance and give insights into the way this dub-savvy artist works.
