International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

This year, Canadian dub-techno producer Deadbeat (aka Scott Monteith) will be pairing up with acclaimed German video-artist Lillevan (ex-Rechenzentrum) for the world premiere of an audio-visual spectacle the pair has been quietly developing over the last few months. Of the collaboration, Monteith says, “We’ve put together something that stands out as quite unique from anything either of us have done before. MUTEK has always been a strong supporter of both of our work and we’re very happy to be able to debut the fruits of our labor at the festival this year.”

Among the very first MUTEK performers and an ardent supporter of the festival over its twelve-year history, Deadbeat ranks among the handful of talents we’ve had the privilege to invest in and develop over the years. From his humble beginnings with the local Hautec imprint for his first EP in 2000, to the worldwide acclaim of 2008’s Roots and Wire, his sixth album, Monteith has spent much of the last decade firmly establishing his credentials as an evolutionary force of the dub-techno template at his creative core.

Best known as founding member of the audio-visual group Rechenzentrum (1997-2008), Lillevan has been internationally celebrated as the go-to video and media artist for a generation of electronic artists that includes Christian Fennesz, Morton Subotnik, Vladislav Delay, Iannis Xenakis, and more. Since the mid-nineties he has mainly investigated non-narrative facets of film, which has lead him to completely abstract works, but also to collage explorations of film history, interactive works for dance groups and much more.
