NOCTURNE 1: CTM = Cosmic Trip to MUTEK

(2009-05-27) NOCTURNE 1: CTM = Cosmic Trip to MUTEK

Société des arts technologiques [SAT]


MUTEK’s first-ever CTM (Club Transmediale) showcase focuses on the hazy lights of the retro-futuristic French psychotronic scene.  For this first Nocturne event, co-presenters Sid Lee have promised to reinvent the SAT into a surrealistic playground of colour and design, provisionally dubbed “Color Your Life.”  No ordinary concert environment ought to be anticipated, then, as the results are at once eye-popping, disorienting, and highly original, with attendees invited to peruse multiple rooms of bright tones and unorthodox activity as they trip along to the soirée’s musical offerings.

The night begins with Montreal’s ORGAN MOOD , before giving way to the ultra-mysterious ZOMBIE ZOMBIE , who arrive for in Montreal for a North American debut. The French duo rev up their otherworldly fusion of psychedelic rock and electronics that raises the ghosts of bands like Suicide and The Residents.

Equally mysterious but no less formidable is TURZI ELECTRONIC EXPERIENCE , the solo project of the eccentric Romain Turzi, who fuses krautrock and commune psychedelics while surrounded by a cavalry of vintage synthesizers that brings to mind the heyday of Jean-Michel Jarre.

The night wraps up with the D.I.R.T.Y. space disco of Paris’ PILOOSKI , who will take Turzi’s synthetic propulsions and embed them with the irresistibly carnal handclaps that drive the artist’s sought-after disco re-edits.
