September 16, 2016
After months of preparation, Tokyo is the latest metropolis to join the burgeoning family of MUTEK events all over the world. Established with the same curatorial vision as its Montréal headquarters, including a mandate to cultivate local talent in a global context, MUTEK.JP arrives as a platform for visionary works that privilege live performance in both electronic music and audiovisual arts. Taking place November 2 to 4 at venues in the heart of the infamous Shibuya neighborhood, MUTEK Japan aims to create a new playground and convergence point for artists and audiences.
This first MICRO_MUTEK event is poised to establish Tokyo as a new destination in a wide-ranging network of like-minded enterprises and its international festival circuit. Connecting the dots between the local Japanese scene, Québec and the rest of the world, MUTEK.JP plugs into the critically regarded infrastructure established in Montréal in 2000, and promises to propel Japanese creators into its web.
Join us in welcoming and celebrating this brand new MUTEK adventure in Tokyo!
This lineup reflects a dedication to the MUTEK ethos, mixing local talent with international names and connecting to the festival’s Québec roots:
