MUTEK Montreal, Festival 2011

(2011-06-01) MUTEK Montreal, Festival 2011

The 12th edition of MUTEK saw a 50% rise in attendance as compared to 2010 and broke all previous attendance records, by which MUTEK continued to demonstrate its ever-growing value within Montreal’s vibrant cultural fabric.

The 2011 headliners certainly didn’t disappoint! Always emboldened to present the most cutting edge blend of electronic music and digital art, the program of MUTEK 12th edition was composed of a list of internationally acclaimed artists : AMON TOBIN, MURCOF & ANTIVJ, PLASTIKMAN, FOUR TET, JAMES HOLDEN and HORROR INC. Furthermore, throughout the five days, thrilling discoveries were to be found at every turn: ELEKTRO GUZZI, DANUEL TATE, ARP, CHANCHA VIA CIRCUITO, RADIQ, SUN ARAW, WAREIKA. In brief, the 2011 edition was as equally about what people didn’t know as much as it was about what people had come to expect.

Of course, MUTEK is also a series of free outdoor events that grow bigger with each passing year. For this 12th edition, alongside the wide-eyed projections and brilliant light sculptures of Extra_Muros, the festival set down a base for the first time at Place de la Paix and Berri UQAM metro, introducing the city and festivalgoers to emerging Quebecois talents. Furthermore, the festival had the opportunity to inaugurate the Foodlab – a SAT collaboration, putting urban cuisine and rural foods into hands of well-known guest chefs and the mouths of festivalgoers.
