The Complete Guide to MUTEK 2012's Program

 

 

At long last, MUTEK 2012 begins this week! Today we present you with a detailed five-day schedule of performances, venues, ticket prices, and premieres so that you can better plan your time in Montreal. As always, a great deal more is available at mutek.org and on the new MUTEK app. This year's App contains not only festival information but many features from the MUTEK magazine, TV, radio, and artist archive platforms. Download it today as your most trusted guide for up-to-date festival news while on the ground. 

If you haven't yet seen Recombinant Media Labs' CINECHAMBER, which launched its North American premiere earlier this week at Excentris to rave reviews, then consider yourself in for an audio-visual experience unlike anything MUTEK has presented before. Featuring works by Christian Fennesz, Robert Henke, Markus Popp, Biosphere, and numerous others, the series brings together some of the most revered names in experimental music for an exclusive limited-run engagement. The program of cinematic sessions and select live performances continues until June 3. Box office and program information is available here.
 
For those of you already in Montreal, you're very much aware that several programs are already underway. The Parcours Numériques gathering of urban digital-art showcases has been lighting up several of Montreal's downtown locations since May 17th and will continue to do so until June 3. 

Starting next Monday, May 28th, MUTEK_Lab's "Tools for an Unknown Future" Symposium gets underway at the PHI Centre for three days. Gathering speakers from around the world, the keynote speeches, panels, presentations, and case studies endeavour to imagine the future of urban spaces as creative platforms. Attendance to the symposium is free and open to the public.  Those interested can RSVP here.

The DIGI_Section Conference Series returns once again on Thursday, May 31st, for three days of artist interviews, panels, presentations, and workshops for fans of electronic music and the digital arts. All events here are also free.

Finally, MUTEK fans with kids should take particular interest in Carton Park, the French quartet consisting of Gangpol & Mit and Juicy Panic, who bring their multimedia children's show to Montreal for a North American premiere. MUTEK will be hosting four afternoon performances over the weekend of June 2nd and 3rd.

But the highlight that binds nearly everyone is the festival's main trajectory of performances. For its 13th edition, MUTEK has assembled one of its most wide-ranging and eclectic line-ups to date. Below you'll find all the set times and other relevant details all in one place. Bon festival!
