Toward the end of Mutek festival on Sunday last week, the last showing of “Cinechamber Classics” took place at the Excentris movie theatre in Montreal. The showcase was once again on 10 screens mounted on 4 walls, in a projected panorama, with surround sound.
This year at Mutek festival, there were some stand-out live audio-visual shows.
Some of the most remarkable audio-visual showcases were at the new facility inside the SAT (Société des arts technologiques de Montréal) called the SATosphere, which has a dome like ceiling.
For Mutek’s 13th edition, the caliber of talent was evident, as it always is. Many of the live acts on the bill brought their well-honed skills to the stages where they performed. Here’s a rundown of some of the shows we saw.
As Mutek Festival in Montreal went into evening two, for the first time Jeff Mills (The Wizard), one of techno’s true pioneers, played the festival.
That’s one question that will be on music enthusiasts’ minds, as the May 30th weekend approaches. Mutek in Montreal is one of the leading festivals for electronic arts - both sonic and visual - and they have just released a series of short teasers. The third video is below, featuring the Plastikman Live show and Amon Tobin’s ISAM Live show.
